Black Women Writers Share Memories of Mothers in ‘Tales from the Sweetheart Gang’

Washington Informer staff writer Dorothy Rowley lists among nine Black female writers who share stories of the cherished memories they have of their mothers in a new book, “Tales from the Sweetheart Gang.”

The authors’ stories, which are told in individually written chapters, were compiled by fellow writer Dorothy Scott Boulware, and the reviews have been good.

For example, Arlen Watson Sr. wrote: “From the perspective of a ‘Momma’s Boy’ I relate to these young ladies and their memories of their moms. As soon I read each chapter/tale from these young ladies, I quickly gathered a mental image, smell sweet aromas and felt a presence of joy & pain that was conquered by their pleasant memories. I loved the lessons/traditions that were carried on by these ladies. The book was a fun read, and I sense the authors had fun traveling down memory lane. Please, if you are looking for a refreshing and honorable dedication to great woman, this book will set the mood casting you down memory lane of all the great features of your own mother or grandmother. Salute to these ladies for a job well done. Wonderful collaboration.”
