ADVANCE PRAISE "An excellent way to begin thinking seriously about a very American dilemma." -- John Edgar Wideman, Washington Post "This groundbreaking book by an extraordinary journalist made me understand why children have children in a way that I never have before. Dash makes it clear that no issue is more important to the future of the black community at large than this one." -- Paula Giddings, author of When and Where I Enter: The Impact of Black Women on Race and Sex in America
