No crystal stair : visions of race and sex in Black women's fiction by Gloria Jean Wade Gayles( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this revised edition, Gloria Wade-Gayles analyzes selected novels by such writers as Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Ann Petry, Gwendolyn Brooks, Dorothy West, and Gayl Jones to offer a fresh vision of the roles - and burdens - of black women in contemporary culture." "Contending that black women are "twice burdened" and "doubly invisible" because of their race and gender. Wade-Gayles pulls us into the lives of these fascinating characters to reveal black women as they really are - struggling against isolation, alienation, loneliness, and victimization, all the while seeking wider horizons for their people and space for themselves as persons with aspirations and dreams." "No Crystal Stair is a celebration of black women writers and their collective vision of the human condition."--Jacket
My soul is a witness : African-American women's spirituality by Gloria Jean Wade Gayles( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My Soul Is a Witness is a powerful testament to the importance of religion and spirituality in die lives of African-American women." "Through essays, poetry, prayer, and song, women of the African-American community celebrate the power of the Spirit and their connections through it. We learn of mothers who bequeath their daughters the strength for living that comes from deep faith; daughters from whose love for the Spirit emerges a love for themselves and their worth as human beings; women whose prayers to the Spirit release them from the pain and weight of past betrayals. From the Church of Aretha to Marie Laveau, Voudou queen, the Spirit is present in all forms of worship, working among all women."--Jacket
