Review:

Sweet, inspiring, and lovingly well researched, Janus Adams's Sister Days takes a meditative, sister-a-day journey through a year's worth of strong, wise, and capable African American women, from the famous to the obscure, from the dynamic to those who just quietly kept on. As she sagely reminds us, "as half the world, women had been no less than half the struggle, no less than half the story, and sometimes a lot more." In affectionately told and poignant anecdotes, these sisters gets their due, in a reverent celebration of "their power, their strength, their pain, their ways, and their better days." --Paul Hughes

From the Inside Flap:

Sister Days Throughout history, African American women have tapped hidden sources of strength and inspiration to conquer impossible odds. We have persevered through dangerous times. We have nurtured families, loved knowledge, and pursued dreams as various and different as the women who dreamed them. Along the way, we have forged new identities, fought for human rights, and made history. Now Janus Adams offers you a daily invitation to share in this life-affirming legacy. In these pages, you will discover famous and unsung sisters who have contributed to our strength. Each has a new story to tell, and each day is a new opportunity to appreciate their precious gifts of motivation and compassion. Here are 365 uplifting meditations on courage, daring, and resistance that bring us valuable reminders of how real women in real times—from Harriet Tubman, to aviator Bessie Coleman, to Wild West legend "Stagecoach Mary," to world-renowned writer Maya Angelou—created a better way of life for themselves and a better world for others. In reading their stories, we ensure that these women live on—as shining beacons to light our own quests for happier, more fulfilled lives.
