Many black men--from Bill Cosby to Michael Eric Dyson--have spoken out about African American society. But where are the voices of the women, especially the young, funny, witty, sarcastic ones? Meet Jam Donaldson, a provocateur of the most entertaining kind. Funny, sad, angry, and refreshingly honest, Conversate Is Not a Word offers food for thought, encouraging people to improve their lives as well as the culture overall. Weaving her own warring viewpoints into the discussion, Donaldson provides not only comic relief but a window into the complex, contradictory perspectives existing within every member of the black community.
