I finished Living for the Revolution: Black Feminist Organizations, 1968 – 1980 last night and started in on Tricia Rose’s Longing to Tell: Black women talk about sexuality and intimacy. I don’t know how I could do what I normally do with a book reivew with Rose’s book. There’s little discussion from Rose. Rather, she has simply compiled the stories of the women, told in their first person voices, with little structure. They talk about a range of things, often family relationships, first experiences, first orgasms, interracial dating and sex, experimentation with lesbian sex if they’re straight, pregnancy and childbirth, and often feeling very unfulfilled in their relationships.
Meanwhile, I left y’all mostly with an overview of the rather thick first chapter. I think I need to first start with an overview of the black feminist organizations (BFOs) she deals with.
