Overview

This collection contains stories and poems written by 12 Black women; it is serendipitous that their voices blend seamlessly, and beautifully, even though the writers are intergenerational. The storytelling crosses local, national, and international cultural sensibilities, giving the reader a glimpse of the way the storytellers 'receive' and share 'Story'. The poets cut through emotional lines to caress the reader, just before they unleash a shaft of insight that rattles your consciousness. Contributors to Black Notes include Motion, Trey Anthony, Itah Sadu, D'bi Young, Sister Souljah, Brenda Lee Browne, Jully Black, and Jemeni.
