"In this book, Tricia Rose breaks the silence by presenting, for the first time, the in-depth sexual testimonies of black women. Spanning a broad range of ages, levels of education, and socioeconomic backgrounds, nineteen women, in their own words, talk with startling honesty about sex, love, family, relationships, body image, and intimacy. Their moving stories provide revealing insights into the many ways black women navigate the complex terrain of sexuality. Compelling, surprising, and powerful, Longing to Tell is sure to jump-start a dialogue and will be required reading for anyone interested in issues of race, gender, and sexuality."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Heavy reading but extremely powerful and meaningful to the lives of every woman of color that is part of the black diaspora. Insightful and detailed documentation. It was heartbreaking to read stories that sound like my own but empowering too. Things don't happen in a vaccuum. It's at least comforting to know there are other things happening out there...if we could just connect to them and be nourished by them. Tough read!
