What's wrong with black women? Not a damned thing The Sisters Are Alright exposes anti-black-woman propaganda and shows how real black women are pushing back against distorted cartoon versions of themselves. Tamara Winfrey Harris takes sharp aim at pervasive stereotypes about black women. She counters warped prejudices with the straight-up truth about being a black woman in America.

Whether or not you identify as Black woman or not, this book is extremely important because it is coming from the perspective of Black female narratives. The author does an amazing job of gathering research of various topics that are relevant to the Black female experience today. As a Black woman, I've finished this amazing book and will continue to replay it in the future. I have walked away feeling more empowered, more enlightened, and more expressive and my Black femininity. Thank you so much to the author and the narrator for making this audio book possible. Much love!

How well do you know your family? Your social class? Your race? Sensitive "Spoon" LeVay and his brother "Flip" see their weekend at the family home on Martha's Vineyard as a perfect opportunity to introduce their girlfriends to their upper class African American parents. Instead they stumble into a domestic powder keg that exposes secrets of prejudice, hypocrisy, and adultery. This fantastic new play comes from the pen of one of the country's most provocative new playwrights!

I absolutely loved it! I was listening to the audio recording while reading the book. It was an absolutely great experience. Audible needs to put more African American dramatized plays on their list!

Caedmon is proud to release this archival full-cast recording of Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire. Blanche DuBois arrives at her sister Stella's New Orleans apartment seeking refuge from a troubled past but her ethereal spirit irks Stella's husband, the loutish Stanley Kowalski. Crudely, relentlessly, he unmasks the lies and delusions that sustain Blanche, until her frail hold on reality is shockingly severed.

The actors are ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!! And the special effects, ambiance, & background noises had me hooked from start to finish!! I only wish there was a visual transcript because I was trying to follow along in my play script and there were lots of adlibs and improvisation so it was hard to follow along.
