Abstract:

"'The Sisterhood' is a tribute to African and African American women who contribute to, exert power in, and influence the societies they live in. Their presence has been apparent since antiquity, despite ostracism, marginalization, and oppression in male-dominated societies. Since ancient times in Africa, black women have contributed to and influenced their nations in a variety of ways such as governmental leadership, commerce, and have appreciated more freedoms than women have on other continents despite facing relegation. In modern America, black women continue to face disregard, though have made their presence known by exerting power and influence in politics, economics, education, civil rights, military service, religion, media outlets, and other aspects of society. They truly are a force worth reckoning, although they still have a long road to travel."--Back cover.
