They Didn't Tell Us That:
Black Women's Sexuality Education in the 1920s-1940s (Paperback)
While there have been great accomplishments in the area of women's history as well as education, Darlene Clark Hine points that black women's history is just beginning to emerge as a vital area within women's and Afro American history, and much work remains to be done. Part of the work that remains both in the field of human sexuality as well as Black women's history includes uncovering the voices of elder women who have been overlooked and undervalued. This book attempts to fill the remaining space with accounts of sexuality education and experiences as told by Black women, thereby contributing to current sex education literature by providing a glimpse into sexuality education and its resulting impact on Black women in the 1920s - 1940s. Moreover this book adds to both Black women's sexual history and sexuality education in that it makes visible that which was once invisible. The oral histories presented here should prove helpful to Black people, young and old, as well as students, educators and researchers interested in the history of sexuality education and/or Women of Color.

Seductive Delusions: How Everyday People Catch STD's
I recently read "Seductive Delusions: How Everyday People Catch STD's" by Dr. Jill Grimes and I wanted to share it with you. I found the book to be a refreshing new approach to educating young adults about sexually transmitted infections.
Johns Hopkins University Press has recently released a new book "Seductive Delusions: How Everyday People Catch STDs", by Jill Grimes, MD.
"Seductive Delusions" reads like episodes of Grey's Anatomy,
highlighting accurate information about STDs through conversations behind closed exam room doors as well as bulleted fact sections about each disease. Stories are more powerful than statistics!
