5.0 out of 5 stars Behind the Mask of the Strong Black Woman, October 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Tamara Beauboeuf-Lafontant has written an amazingly profound assessment of the long held view that Black women, given all they have endured historically and in everyday life, are strong women. Beauboeuf-Lafontant's theoretical framework and well documented observations make clear that Black women have not, heretofore, developed the vocabulary to discourse about their pseudoethos of strength.

Behind the Mask of the Strong Black Woman is a must read for all Black women and Black men. Equally so, it deserves to be read and studied by all women and men regardless of race and ethnicity.

Well researched, well argued, and well written, Behind the Mask of the Strong Black Woman has set a new standard in Black women studies and gender studies.
