''This unique collection of 15 essays, all by African American women, concerns the impact of HIV/AIDS on various aspects of US women's lives, families, and environment. The book is heartbreaking to read because of the juxtaposition of the strength of the African American women's self-identity bolstered by family and community support, and the devastation that this disease creates in their lives....especially important and enlightening for male and female non-African Americans. Excellent references....Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.''- Choice
