I would like to thank you all for a wonderful turn out last night for the discussion of Professor Banks’ “Is Marriage for White People.”
And a special thanks to you Professor Banks for taking time out of your busy schedule to enlighten us further via skype. The book was powerful and your spoken word enhanced our understanding and appreciation for your work.
In closing for the book I would just like to say this. The book was not about bashing our black brothers as people have often said. The book was about empowering black women to have more options. The black woman is loyal, powerful, beautiful and nurturing. It is high time for some reciprocation. If we can get those qualities in a black man that is great, and if we get it from a non-black man it is just a positive.
Thanks again for your participation. I look forward to seeing you all again next month when Renee facilitates “Reaching Back” by Nea Anna Simone.
