5.0 out of 5 stars A Trumpeter's Lullaby, Nov. 1 2000
This review is from: Trumpet Spectacular (Audio CD)
I listened to a sample of "A Trumpeter's Lullaby" from RealPlayer and never have I felt so relaxed. It's great listening to on the job when feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or distracted. The soothing trumpet sound will make your body feel limp and your mind clear of negative and scattered thoughts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Things aren't always what they seem, Oct. 28 2000
This review is from: DIVIDED SISTERS (Paperback)
I always thought that as women, we stuck together against a male dominated society. However, as we approached the twenty-first century, it is sad to say that all women don't stick together. Divided Sisters proves just that. Historically, black women and white women have been divided not only by race, but by gender and class. However, black women are three steps behind by the black man, white woman, and white man.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Movie That a Man Can Watch, Oct. 25 2000
This review is from: Best Man (Widescreen) (DVD)
Friendships among in movies hardly exists. But "The Best Man" under the directorship of Malcolm Lee proves that friendship among men lasts a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie of all time, Oct. 25 2000
This review is from: North and South (VHS Tape)
I saw the previews of the movie on ABC and knew it was going to be a good movie. I watched the series and loved it. It is intrigued with scandal, class, slavery, and war. A nation that will be divided later by Civil War, two friends struggle to make the best of their relationship despite what is happening around them. Orry, played by Patrick Swayze, falls for a woman who is not only married, also has one drop of black blood. His love for her has never died because he knew one day that she would get away from the evil clutches of her abusive husband. Love is not like what it used to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars What they don't teach in European history class, Oct. 6 2000
You ever get the feeling when you're listening on a lecture in European history that something is missing?
Black Londoners fills in the gap of British history that is rarely, if ever mentioned in textbooks. This book is a pictorial documentary of the black experience in London from the Edwardian period to twentieth century, centering the lives of the black diaspora ranging from arts and entertainment to politics.
The presence of African culture has been prevalent in Britain since ancient times and as Britain's society is more multiracial, historians and the general public are finding new information on the Black experience in Britain for generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars One hell of a sexual journey!, Sept. 27 2000
This review is from: Rude Gal (Paperback)
"Freedom is the road seldom travelled by the multitude--let me take you on a journey". Written by Carl Hendricks, the man that Angela Seymour would meet and have a dangerous affair with. Angela was sexually deprived in her marriage to a wealthy, ambitious black financier who's immersed into his work rather than her. Carl fulfills her sexual desires but also attempts to destroy her. This book is sexually explosive as it says! Once you read it, it's hard to even put down. You'll find yourself immersed into this erotic novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still good as it is!, Sept. 19 2000
High school may have been the most depressing for me but rap music was all good! And Black Sheep had the dope lyrics and one of my favorite songs was "The Choice is Yours". Still good after all this time!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully written love story., Sept. 19 2000
This review is from: Fate (Paperback)
I first read the raving reviews that were posted for this book and decided to buy it for myself. As soon as I received the book from Amazon.com, I immediately read it and found myself immersed into this interracial love story. Right next to Sandra Kitt, Pamela Leigh Starr is on my list for a great interracial romance novel. This book did good without the sex scenes in some romance novels. Hope to see another book written like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be rich to decorate your space!, July 28 2000
Although the women in the book have a high status, that shouldn't restrict any woman from having a room of her own. It doesn't take luxurious accomodations to create a room of her own. With some imagination and decorating sense, a woman should be able to create the atmosphere that she wants. I haven't purchased this book but have glanced through it at a furniture store. Yes, these women do have celebrity status, but they are still women. Self-fulfillment is to put yourself first and that is what part of the book is based on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy for both sexes to read., May 6 2000
This review is from: Single Black Female (Paperback)
The book didn't do a great injustice to either black man or woman. Author was right down to the point of relationships. My favorite quote from Carol was "I am not single by choice."
