Embracing Sisterhood describes the contemporary state of the black woman collective and explores the legacy of black sisterhood in these times. Through an examination of how these ideas are articulated and experienced in the population, McDonald determines the relative degree of black sisterhood and "black step-sisterhood" that exists among African-American women today.
