I discovered and now am reading BODY LANGUAGE: Sisters in Shape, Black Women's Fitness, and Feminist Identity Politics" (2011, Temple Univ. Press), by prof. Kimberly Lau of Univ. of California Santa Cruz.
The book is a regular paperback, available online, in stores, etc.
Any of us know already this fabulous group, SISTERS IN SHAPE, based in PHILLY? Started by a sister named MELANIE MARCHAND. This book is about them. AND it's about US; about a group of Black women organizing ourselves doing things TO DIRECTLY BENEFIT us.
This book definitely is worth starting some discussion groups!!!
