i gave this book to the important women in my life a few years ago, they enjoyed reading the various stories and tidbits of humor. a nice book club read will have you laughing out loud.

Love Anthologies!

I got this from my best friend for Christmas, off my wishlist. This anthology of essays, prose, drawing, and other art was an interesting look at how Black women in the US showed humor through the centuries. There was one anti-Semitic joke I did *not* expect or appreciate.Except for that "joke," I enjoyed the volume. I also enjoyed discovering new books to read from many of the writers included in the anthology.Recommended for geeks that like the anthology format.

Very good book! will have you laughing all the way through it, this is one of those books you can read to your friends while you are out sitting on the patio, it has stories of fun, sex and all kinds of jokery in it. I really love this book, it is one to always stay on my shelf while other books go in the box.

I must admit some of my favorite parts of the book were at the end of the themed chapters where the author listed sayings and superstitions many of us grew up hearing. It was as if I was hearing my grandmother's voice in my ear all over again. Fantastic to see that they were universal in our culture!

Superb anthology of African American literature. Poems, essays, short stories, letters, and even comics's all in there. It's a good one to keep handy on the bookshelf for a quick humorous read.

It was a HOOT! Very funny!

funny as hell!
