Praise

The personal record of one woman’s unflinching quest for respite from racism and sexism; it is also a challenge to those of us who have sought to change what we abhor in ourselves. —Jordana Hart, Ms.

“Wade-Gayles’s intelligent reflections shine through. . . . Hers is a worthy addition to the canon of black women’s literature.” —Amy Alexander, The Boston Globe

“Wade-Gayles has a gifted memory that enables her to share her powerful experiences that hold lessons for us all.” —Miami Herald

“[A] thoughtful and candid collection.” —Evelyn C. White, San Francisco Chronicle

“[Rooted Against the Wind] adds significant volume to the dignity of Black literature and to the Black women’s resonant literary voice therein.” —Sandra West, The Savannah Herald

“Wade-Gayles generously shares her spirituality and feminist perspective, which is both provocative and challenging. . . . This book will become another jewel from the Wade-Gayles chronicles.” —Lillian Lewis, Booklist
