FAIRYTALE is the first and only book to provide inside portraits of The Pointer Sisters' formative and professional life--June, Bonnie, Anita and Ruth come of age as "mold-breaking" artists during the Civil Rights and Black Power movements of the 1960s. See how paths chosen and challenges faced--individually and collectively--strengthened and honed their forty-eight year musical career.
This is a story of love and rivalry between sisters--for lead vocals, and for men. It is also an intimate story of family love--of a sagacious, strong and caring father, and a mother's love.
In recorded and transcribed interviews over several years, and family heirloom photographs and private personal letters, Anita and Fritz Pointer (sister and brother) bring to life the exciting story of: migration during the 1940s Great Migration of Black Americans; fifteen family members living in one house; the deeply troubling dismissal of their father from the church he helped to build; Bonnie and Anita's founding membership in the Northern California Black Panther Party; the Sisters serendipitous discovery.
This copy is autographed by the sisters themselves!
