The Women of Brewster Place: A Novel in Seven Stories (Penguin Contemporary American Fiction Series) by Gloria Naylor

Once the home of poor Irish and Italian immigrants, Brewster Place, a rotting tenement on a dead-end street, now shelters black families. This novel portrays the courage, the fear, and the anguish of some of the women there who hold their families together, trying to make a home. Among them are: Mattie Michael, the matriarch who loses her son to prison; Etta Mae Johnson who tries to trade the high life for marriage with a local preacher; Kiswana Browne who leaves her middle-class family to organize a tenants union.
