Secret Lives Of Church Ladies And Our Song Of The Week This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, a new book recently published by West Virginia University Press is taking the literary world by storm. “The Secret Lives of Church Ladies” by Deesha Philyaw explores the sexuality of Black women in the church that Philyaw knew growing up. Also, we listen to our Mountain Stage Song of the Week brought to us by singers and songwriters Billy Bragg and Joe Henry.
