This book is a compendium of essays by a woman who lived during the closeted 50's but was out to herself and brought that sensitivity/sensibility to other Black women, when there were few voices of women of color to say that one was not alone. This was one of the first two books I read when I came out. The other was by Audre Lorde. The interview with both Anita & Audre that is included here both enlightens and makes a call to be an activist whether on a personal or on whatever level one has to be on. This book would be a most welcomed addition to any collection of Black Lesbian Herstory and Black Lesbian writing.

These essays shared by Ms. Cornwell are extraordinary. The readings help affirm my place in time and propel me to the next level as a proud black homosexual lesbian, feminist and activist. Anita's writings give you a sense of the work still left to be done.

I have known the author for many years and now we both live in the same nursing home. Anita no longer remembers that she wrote this book, but I got her to sign my copy. She said she had never done this before. But I told her that she had signed many books. So she wrote her name and then thought a moment. Then she said 'I'm a celebrate!' I told her that she most certainly is a celebrate and gave her a hug. When she sees me, she knows I know her and always smiles at me. Which delights me as mostly she just sits.
This is a wonderful book and should be read by any feminist and Lesbian.
