Pressestimmen"I found my understanding deepened and both my interest and sympathy exited. Sisters With Power lives up to its title. The range is impressive The reader is left in no doubt of the powerful effect of slavery and of patriarchal domination on the lives of contemporary black women. Nor can one escape the negative values which often shape women's position in church society. But the lasting effect is a recognition of the strength for creative good here, which the churches surely must value." The Expository Times, August 2001
