My Soul Is a Witness is a powerful testament to the importance of religion and spirituality in die lives of African-American women.
Through essays, poetry, prayer, and song, women of the African-American community celebrate the power of the Spirit and their connections through it. We learn of mothers who bequeath their daughters the strength for living that comes from deep faith; daughters from whose love for the Spirit emerges a love for themselves and their worth as human beings; women whose prayers to the Spirit release them from the pain and weight of past betrayals. From the Church of Aretha to Marie Laveau, Voudou queen, the Spirit is present in all forms of worship, working among all women.
