More About The Sisters Are Alright by Tamara Winfrey Harris; Tamberla Perry
 
 
 
Overview
The Sisters Are Alright exposes anti black-woman propaganda and shows how real black women are pushing back against distorted cartoon versions of themselves. When African women arrived on American shores, the three-headed hydra servile Mammy, angry Sapphire, and lascivious Jezebel followed close behind. In the '60s, the Matriarch, the willfully unmarried baby machine leeching off the state, joined them. Emancipation may have happened more than 150 years ago, but America still won't let a sister be free from this coven of caricatures. Tamara Winfrey Harris delves into marriage, motherhood, health, sexuality, beauty, and more, taking sharp aim at pervasive stereotypes about black women. She counters warped prejudices with the straight-up truth about being a black woman in America."
