Shifting: The Double Lives of Black Women in America
Charisse Jones (au); Kumea Shorter-Gooden (au). Based on the Afr. Amer. Women’s Voice Project, an interview & questionnaire study with 400 women across the U.S. & from many walks of life, the book reveals that a large number of Black women feel pressure to compromise their true selves in order to fit in to Amer. soc. They report changing inwardly & outwardly -- shifting “white,” then shifting “Black” again, shifting “corporate,” shifting “cool” -- a coping & survival skill that often diminishes the joys of living an authentic life. In a culture that is both racist & sexist, Black women are susceptible to an array of psychological problems. All readers will gain a heightened sensitivity to the continued damage wrought by bias & prejudice, & an increased awareness of what we can all do to make a difference.
