Sole Sisters : The Joys and Pains of Single Black Women, Paperback / softback Book

Sole Sisters : The Joys and Pains of Single Black Women Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The news is not good for black women when it comes to finding a partner.

Where not long ago there were roughly two married women to every single woman, those numbers have gradually reversed over the past few decades now, more than 60 percent of black women have either never married or are divorced.

These numbers are far greater than those of any other social group, and the trend shows no sign of reversing.

Mathis brings the skills of an astute veteran journalist and the passions of an attentive and articulate storyteller to uncovering the truths in single black women's lives today.

Sole Sisters is certain to ignite public debate on how and why so many black women remain single and spark discussion as to what semi-permanent singlehood means for so many.
