By Lamont K. Pippins on February 17, 2007
Format: Paperback
I found this book so interesting and needed to reflect the wonderful work black women have made as objects of beauty. I was suprised to know that women like Daphne Maxwell-Reid was a cover model. This book is a definate reference manual for black history.
