A Marvelous Blend
of Memoir, Folk Wisdom,
and Afro-American Beliefs.
Actress, storyteller, and priestess Luisah Teish dramatically re-creates centuries-old African-American traditions with music, memoir, and folk wisdom.
“A book of startling remembrances, revelations, directives, and imperatives, filled with the mysticism, wisdom, and common sense of the African religion of the Mother. It should be read with the same open-minded love with which it was written.”
— Alice Walker, author of “The Color Purple”
