A profound portrait of the real lives of women living below the poverty line. The title comes from street vernacular: "Don't call me out of name" means don't label me something I'm not. "Brilliantly convey[s] the experiences and challenges of living in and coping with poverty. Don't Call Us Out of Name should be read by all people involved in the national dialogue on poverty and welfare in America, especially those with simplistic views about social deprivation."-William Julius Wilson, author of When Work Disappears
