I Woke Up and Put My Crown on: The Project of 76 Voices
Through direct interviews, Rochell D. (Ro Deezy) Hart explores life for today's African-American woman. For three years, Hart talked to an extraordinary group of women from around the United States about their realities, their struggles and their methods of survival. The conclusion is a remarkable novel of biographies that empowers, enlightens and positively redefines the perception of the black woman. Maria Dowd, author of Journey to Empowerment (BET Books), the author's mother, Vickie D. Hart, Tracy Price-Thompson (Essence best-selling author) and Jacquelyn Hughes Mooney, whose work has appeared on Oprah, are included within the '76 voices'. Author Shellie R. Warren, whose novel Inside of Me has a foreword written by Grammy-nominated artist India Arie, Stacey R. Tolbert, Darlene Solomon-Rogers and more are also celebrated within this significant collection.
