It's Good to Be Black
From the preface by Carmen Kenya Wadley:"Is it good to be black? To Ruby BerkleyGoodwinit was....The black she writes about has nothing to do with skin color, but it does have a great deal to do with self images, values, spiritual strength, and most of all love. Unlike the contradicting definitions of blackness we see reflected in today's crime statistics, movies, television, newspapers, political speeches, advertisements, and sociological reports, Ruby BerkleyGoodwin's definition of blackness is simple and to the point: black is good. It's Good to be Black is more than the story (history)
