Dear Sisters | A Womanist Practice of Hospitality (Westfield)
The Life-Strength of Sisterhood
What allows African American women not just to survive but to become resilient?
N. Lynne Westfield finds an answer to this question as she examines the Dear Sisters' Literary Group. As a Womanist scholar, Westfield reflects on the ways in which the hospitality of the group relates to the long-standing African American tradition of concealed gatherings, the Christian tradition of hospitality, and Christian education.
