Sometimes Rhythm, Sometimes Blues is a groundbreaking anthology that explores the many reasons whyanalyzing materialism and financial expectations, single motherhood, bling-bling culture, media representations of African-American gender roles, missing fathers, incarcerated partners, and moreand offers hope from women who have beaten the odds. Writers including Kevin Powell and Victor LaValle weigh in on the men's side in a "Talking Back" section, while female contributors include Kiini Ibura Asalaam, Shawn E. Rhea, Shani O'Neal, and Asha Bandele. "
