Why read it?

1 author picked In Search of Our Mothers' Gardens as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This anthology of some of Walker’s most powerful works with a focus on discovering ourselves through studying those who came before us is both incredibly informative and emotional. It explores motherhood not only through the biological role but also in a sense of community mothering and foremothers. There is much to learn about our present by examining lessons laid out for us by generations past.

From Anna's list on Black motherhood.
