African-American Women's Health and Social Issues

By Catherine Fisher Collins | Go to book overview

enough to and for whom? We are good enough to and for ourselves, our families (who count so much in our lives), and our social support systems, whose experiences are similar and whose opinions matter to us more than any others. We simply feel that we are persons of worth and respect ourselves for what we are. We do not need to be told what we should do or with whom we should identify in order to feel good enough about ourselves (p. 61).

Life imitates art and black women have plenty of art to rely upon. They cope by repossessing their roots in a myriad of ways and occasions, not because others say so, but because they know that it is the only way to return to wholeness.
