Everything Black Women Should Know About Love, Intimacy and Relationships
Written in a "home-girl with a touch of class" voice, Max Elliott gives her "sister-girls" straight, humorous talk on issues long ignored in the Black community - Black women's feelings about beauty, self-esteem, intimacy and sexuality, and how they're all inter-connected.
Whether it be a society that puts white beauty on a pedestal, or makes women believe sex should be the equivalent of love, or has screwed Black men so much so that they've become a rare commodity and Black women believe they should take and put up with whatever Black man they can get, Max Elliott decided enough is enough
Using three voices: "Miss Thang" -when women are in their 20s and think they know it all; "Sister-Girl" -when women are older and realize they don't know all the answers; and "Queen Mother"-when women are learned and wise, and told in the hippest of prose, 'Ms Thang' tells Black women that, "Yes indeed, we need to know we are loved and that above all others we should love our selves."
