“Babylon Sisters’ funny, feminine, fabulous voice sings a story of history, family, love, and redemption. Cleage’s ability to make the personal political and the political personal triumphs once again! Nestled in this beautifully written ode to love—of child, friends, men, and self—is a call to political activism and empowerment.” Jill Nelson, author of Sexual Healing
