Black Women Bare All About Their Skin, Hair, Hips, Lips, and Other Parts
Provocative essays on body image by black women.
Candid, witty, and insightful, Naked is a compelling collection of essays that captures what today's black women think about their bodies-from head to toe.
Tackling such issues as hair texture, skin color, weight, and sexuality, it follows women on their paths to acceptance-and enjoyment -of their unique features...to a place where it doesn't matter how big the breasts or how long the legs, only what is in the heart.
Includes contributions from women of all ages and walks of life, including such notables as:
- Iyanla Vanzant
- Jill Scott
- Tracee Ellis Ross
- Jill Nelson
- Hilda Hutcherson
- asha bandele
- Melyssa Ford
Edited by Ayana Byrd and Akiba Solomon
