Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Jacqueline Jones' Labor of Love, Labor of Sorrow examines the struggle of African-American women to protect their household and community based "labor of love" while controlling their wage-earning "labor of sorrow." Illustrated by a rich collection of photographs, extensively referenced and supplemented by appendices, Jones' study relates changes in the structure and management of black households to changes in the kinds of work African-American women have done.
