I'm up to participating in an online discussion about this book. One of my goals for this year is to do more to affirm African American women. We got issues and we never get to talk about them 'cause we'd be considered either disloyal (to our men) or whiny bleeps (by everyone else). This group and discussing a book about how we can and should help ourselves (because our needs are valid AND we're not whiney bleeps) are good things that I'd like to pursue more often.

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!!!
