About the Author

Sheila Walker is professor of psychology at Scripps College and chair of the Intercollegiate Department of Africana Studies at The Claremont Colleges.


If anyone is curious about the depth and scope of the sociocultural and psychological experiences and profiles of young African American women then this book should be kept close by for use as a reference and a resource. Beautifully crafted and logically constructed Sheila Walker's book will be a major source for understanding the influences of self, place, and identity of young ethnic women for years to come. With a wealth of interesting material and a clear and accommodating, yet sufficiently rigourous, framework, anyone who studies these pages will come out a richer person. The written voice is confident and authoritative. The text is clear, engaging, and inspiring. -- Joseph Trimble, Western Washington University
