Black Woman Redefined:
Finally, a groundbreaking book that reveals and dispels the unfair stereotypes attached to strong, successful 21st-century black women! Author Sophia A.

In Meesha Mink’s Real Wifeys: Get Money, we meet Harriett “Luscious” Jordan, who used to work for Goldie’s exotic dancing biz as a stripper.
