Worth to read it Nov 9, 2006
This "serving" of the Chicken Soup for the soul shows the vision, way of thinking and feelings of AfroAmerican women, which have had a so great role in the shaping of the recent history of the USA. I've missed more stories from the "old days", more stories told from grandmothers to their grandchildren and I think the book would be richer with them. Also, it doens't show the sad face of the racism many of those women have suffered and even if it's extremely hard and sad, it's not less true and it must be told in order to avoid such facts being repeated.

This Chicken Soup Feels Good Going Down Sep 19, 2006
I'm really enjoying this book. I'm formerly an avid reader who recently has been so busy that spending time reading and finishing a good, thick book has been quite a challenge. I like this book because while I'm commuting or waiting in the doctor's office or whatever I can choose at random any of these short, stories and get a quick "pick me up" a little lift in my spirits that gets me through my day in a better frame of mind. I definitely reccommend it!
Great Reading for All Ages, Genders & Races Sep 14, 2006
I have enjoyed reading about the joys, the struggles, the good and the bad of this wonderful culture. Women have many roles, moms, daughters, sisters, aunts, wives, friends. I have enjoyed reading about all of these roles from personal experiences and veiws of the writers. I recommend it to everyone who enjoys good reading and want to know more about the phenomenal black woman.
Chicken Soup For The AA Woman's Soul Is Hot and Spicy! Sep 13, 2006
This is a great read! The stories are uplifting, inspirational and soothes the soul. I met quite a few of the contributors in LA at the Staples Center release and they were personable, touchable and very encouraging. If they can do it, so can you! That was the feeling I got from each of them especially Lisa Nichols. LOL! Buy the book and see for yourself. I LOVE THIS BOOK!
