Ordinary Extraordinary African American Women: The Elders is the first book in a 4-book series celebrating African American women. This first book in the series features African American women who have lived their ordinary lives in an extraordinary way. Often invisible and certainly undervalued, African American women are the backbone of the African American community as mothers, teachers, artists, businesswomen, trailblazers, activists, wives, friends, and confidants. This edition of candid narrative told primarily in their own words focuses on our Elders—ten women over 70 years of age—who share their journeys, reflections, and wisdom derived from a lifetime of challenges, successes, disappointments, and triumphs. Here, we affirm that the stories of Black women are important and must be shared and celebrated.
