Editorial Reviews

Review

"A book of startling remembrances, revelations, directives, and imperatives, filled with the mysticism, wisdom, and common sense of the African religion of the Mother. It should be read with the same open-minded love with which it was written."  — Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple

"Jambalaya is a gift, open to all people, a gift of an ancient tradition, a gift of stories and celebrations, a gift of Teish's own history and voice, the voice of a strong, knowledgeable, and wise black woman."  — Starhawk, author of The Spiral Dance and The Fifth Sacred Thing

"Teish reveals a wealth of new visions and ancient wisdom from a cultural heritage unknown to most readers. To a style of writing that is friendly and relaxed, Teish adds the spice of her wonderful sense of humor. This is a book that sharpens the intuitive sense in each of us and encourages us to that inner knowledge."  — Merlin Stone, author of When God Was a Woman

From the Back Cover

A Marvelous Blend
of Memoir, Folk Wisdom,
and Afro-American Beliefs.

Actress, storyteller, and priestess Luisah Teish dramatically re-creates centuries-old African-American traditions with music, memoir, and folk wisdom.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ
Reviewed in the United States on October 23, 2020
This is my newly worn copy after reading it cover to cover. It is an EXCELLENT RESOURCE! Yeye Luisah Teish too tremendous responsibility in presenting her work in loving, supportive, and thought-provoking ways. This body of work makes sense to me on every level! It was as if she (Yeye Luisah) was speaking directly to me. It is a MUST READ for any who is ready to take responsibility for her destiny... Ase'

Love the book, the book gets 5 stars! Maybe next time whoever is packaging books could be more careful and try not to ruin items prior to the buyer receiving them.
