    Book Description:
    Ras Baraka’s "Black Girls Learn Love Hard" (Moore Black Press 2006) is more than a brother mourning the loss of his sister; more than a father arming his daughters with weapons of truth; more than a son lamenting the struggle of his foremothers. "Black Girls Learn Love Hard" is more than baraka’s first collection of poetry, it is a critical look at a world that preys on women instead of praising them, a thought provoking investigation into the social and political issues that plague the African American community, and a passionate tribute to the strength and resilience of humanity. This touching, powerful collection of work that pays homage to the life and courageous spirit of Baraka’s younger sister Shani, and all women who learn love hard.
