About the Author
Praise For Brothers (and Me): A Memoir of Loving and Giving…
"Donna Britt is a born giver and along life's bumpy roads she found her share of takers. Combining her incredible talents of giving and writing, in this tender but gritty well-crafted memoir she dropped her fig leaf bearing her soul, faced her demons, and arose the victor. Never again will I read a newspaper headline without imagining the other brothers of the world behind it."
-Ron Hall, coauthor of Same Kind of Different as Me
"In this gutsy memoir, journalist Britt write engagingly about the men in her life, and how caring for them often robbed her of a sense of self-mission....Britt writes eloquently of a woman's sense of anguish and ambiguity in giving herself so completely."
"In her debut memoir, former Washington Post columnist Britt offers an introspective account of growing up in Gary, Indiana...A probing psychological exploration that delves to rarely tapped depths."
-AARP The Magazine
"Achingly honest. An alternately raw and elegant memoir...A wrenching, introspective examination of a life through the prism of racism, sexism, and unconditional devotion. Donna Britt's insights into her roles as mother, wife, and sister to black men explores the gray and fuzzy complexity of human emotion when, for better or worse, imperfect people love other imperfect people."
"Few black women have written about black men more frankly with heartfelt eloquence than former Washington Post columnist Donna Britt."
