This is a book that flows with rhythmic insights. The poetry is reflective of the awareness Black people must have in struggles against racism, miseducation, police abuse, false imprisonment, frame ups, police killings, broken families and other forms of oppression faced by the African-American Community. Straight from the Heart is colorful, soulful and socially informative. This book of poetry covers the dynamic phases of our experiences in a society where institutional racism exists.

How Should I Wear My Crown? poetically explores the many challenges Black women are engaged in. This is a book of spoken word worth reading.

Sister Ameenah is truly a Warrior Queen.

Straight from the Heart is a proud and passionate expression from a true Diva. It is a revelation of our greatness and struggles. I was truly entertained, yet the book was instructional, and taught me what dancing means.

A great educational poetry and performing arts book. I use the poetry and stories to teach history, creative writing compare and contrast concepts, to promote self esteem, to encourage teamwork and empower the students I teach.

This book is a tool that generates opportunities for discussion, teaching and learning that are essential for the ultimate quintessential educational model for Black families. My favorite poem is 'Happy Kwanzaa Everybody'.
