Book Description

Speaking frankly, not peddling fantasy, and writing honestly and sharply, in About Black Women, My Grandmother Told Me: Worthy Advice for Future Generations, Narcisse Nguema offers 791 bits of time-tested advice for everyone, but especially for African American women.

Women are the core of society, and the black woman’s authenticity is not a matter of negotiation or discomfort–the black authenticity is pride, and shall remain immaculate. The more black women accept themselves in their entirety, the better the black community will be.

With Nguema’s firm but clear guidance, readers of About Black Women will again claim the feminine behaviors that civilized culture before: the actions that built up ethics, morals and rules, and law and wealth.

"About Black Women, My Grandmother Told Me: Worthy Advice for Future Generations” by Narcisse Nguema is a book that you’d think would be geared towards black women, but you’d be sadly wrong and missing out on some very profound insights if you didn’t meet the target demographic and turned away from this book. Nguema is actually a male, so it’s interesting to see him relay the advice from his grandmother in a way you might not expect. But Nguema realized his grandmother’s words of wisdom were too important to keep stored away just because he might receive backlash due to his gender – and he’s an attorney, to boot. In general, his grandmother knew that people – not just black women – should be proud of their identities and histories and be a good person inside and out. Regardless of our culture, gender, or race, we could all use a little more women like Nguema’s grandmother in our lives, but since we don’t have her, we can take away a few of her nuggets of wisdom to make the world a better place.

Member Reviews Aamira Teresa R, Educator This book is a manifesto and a plan on Improving the African and African American Society from within, the author suggests we do so by : 1. Begin with our relationships with each other male and female to enter a respectful way of life to build a Black Society. 2. Black societies need to better target their requirements for a strong society. 3. Black people need to reframe their struggle and recover their authenticity and better build wealth and defend their lives at first. 4. To fix that state of things, the black woman's standards of education and behavior must be reset to re-empower the black communities, wherever they are. He attests that Women are the cultivators of building and educating society. 5. This author's philosophy closely related to Frantz Fannon’s writings of: “Dying Colonialism”, and “Towards an African Revolution.” This book is insightful, scholarly, full of meaningful antidotes! If one wants to take a closer look at where African African Americans Societies are, and how they can move forward from an ancestral point of view, this is the book for you!
