    Aberjhani

    Suzanne Jackson is an extraordinary artist and Rachel Reese the perfect editor for this volume. FIVE DECADES is a major achievement, especially in the current era when women's voices are emerging in many exciting, beautiful, and powerful ways. The book is also a wonderful contribution to current celebrations of the Harlem Renaissance centennial.
