This powerful and important book is the culmination of Melba Wilson's long-held desire to write about an experience that affected her and countless other women and children. Looking at the experience of black women incest survivors, she examines the cost of this survival and the strengths that make it possible. Wilson focuses on the dynamics of sex and sexual oppression as they intersect with gender, class and race. She includes the voices of other survivors, a discussion of the role of professionals, and an exploration of incest in the autobiographical and fictional work of Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, Buchi Emecheta and other black writers.
