From Publishers Weekly:

The latest in the "Souls of My Sisters" series geared to African-American women features new celebrity contributors and essays on faith, family, career, self-esteem, friendship, and love. As the Communications Director for Congressman Gregory W. Meeks and president of her own company, Sandy has worked on women's causes throughout her long career, and Daniels is a long-time book editor. Here they have brought together a new collection of essays from over 40 women, including a few icons of Black America, to illuminate some of the issues that young women face today. Contributors include singer-songwriter Lalah Hathaway, who urges you to "Start trusting your intuition now" and TV personality Dee Vasquez, who wants you to "Dream big for yourself." Interspersed with quotes from the likes of Halle Berry, Dionne Warwick, and Beyonce Knowles, these personal chronicles from small business owners, students, activists, artists, and academics is about empowerment for women by women, though most often with a little help from above.
