"Home Girls. The girls from the neighborhood and from the block, the girls we grew up with... we are not strangers and never have been. I am convinced that Black feminism is, on every level, organic to Black experience." This groundbreaking anthology defines Black women's struggles and dreams through the voices of thirty-four contributors. HOME GIRLS was one of the first articulations of Black feminist thought and has been a major influence upon the current renaissance of Black women writers. It has become a basic refernce work for readers concerned about the intersection of race, gender, sexual orientation, & class. Contributors include Alexis DeVeaux, Toi Derricotte, Jewelle Gomez, Gloria T. Hull, June Jordan, Audre Lorde, Bernice Reagon, & Ann Allen Shockley. "In terms of teaching, sharing, caring, healing, and liberating, HOME GIRLS is one of the most important books in the history of Black Women."--Alice Walker.
