“A provocative, heart-breaking and frequently hilarious collection of original essays on what it means to be Black, a woman, a mother and a global citizen in today’s ever-changing world.”—Glamour
“A collage of insightful analyses of the messy places where race, culture, and technology intersect. A powerful collection that is very much of the present moment of resistance but will also endure.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)Black women have never been more visible or more publicly celebrated. But for every new milestone, every magazine cover, every box- office record smashed, the reality of everyday life for Black women remains a complex, nuanced, contradiction-laden experience.
Award-winning journalist and American-in-London Kenya Hunt threads razor-sharp cultural observation through evocative and relatable stories. From Sally Hemings to #MeToo, from Beyoncé to Boris Johnson, Hunt’s essays—alongside guest contributors Candice Carty-Williams, Jessica Horn, Ebele Okobi, Funmi Fetto, and Freddie Harrel—deftly capture our current cultural moment while also creating a timeless celebration of womanhood, of Blackness, and what it truly means to be living and thriving as a Black woman today.
