I was laughing out loud multiple times while reading this gem from Phoebe Robinson. In addition to laughs, she provides moving commentary on race and gender issues. Her chapter on The Angry Black Woman Myth, in which she describes the draining process of 'measure twice, cut once,' is fantastic. I plan to share this chapter, especially with fellow white people. I definitely plan to read any future works by this impressive comedian. Yet all this is masterfully calibrated to not shy away from the hard issues, while not making it so heartbreaking as to be unbearable, ideal for its teenage audience.
Promising review: "This is much more than a book or a collection of writings. It's an experience more like surviving a traumatic event, seeing a deep and distressing movie or having a long and difficult talk with someone who has been oppressed from all sides. It accomplishes that which no other book I have ever read has done. Lorde defies all the labels she and others use to describe her. It stares the weaknesses we all share right in the face and finds ways to fight if not conquer them. Lorde allows the reader to get inside her skin like no other writer, and for the first time ever, made me feel the anger, terror, fear, helplessness I have sensed in many if not all black people.
And yet her greatest criticisms are not of whites, but especially of her black sisters and then her brothers. She clearly does not set herself apart because she knows she has had 'my boot on a sister's face. Promising review: "Maya writes in such a natural, relatable way that the reader is inescapably drawn into her experiences. Her optimism, despite some very trying circumstances, is both contagious and empowering.
It's also a testament to the talents and strength of people around her and the culture in which she was raised. As someone coming from such a different and more privileged upbringing, I was still mesmerized by her masterful storytelling. Promising review: "A fierce and intensely written polemic, a must-read for anyone who cares about the real state of 'race relations' in our tragically conflicted America. This is, at one and the same time, a much-needed corrective for 'white' complacency and a most personal declaration of a questing soul who can settle for nothing less than truth in coming to know what it really means to be aware, sensitive and black in a society built on centuries of lying to ourselves about every aspect of black existence.
Promising review: "I love Issa Rae. I've followed her work. She is brilliant, beautiful, and hilariously funny.
The Most Undervalued Leadership Traits Of Women
Misadventures of ABG is laugh out loud funny. She gives me 'Life' throughout this book.
I'm also an awkward black girl. I'm so thankful for Issa sharing her story. I look forward to anything else she does.
I know whatever is, it's going to be Bomb Ass Good! Promising review: "I had to read the book for one of my English courses. It quickly becomes apparent why the book appears on every 'best books' lists out there. This is a masterpiece of fiction. However, it helps to read the book with commentary and notes. The messages of Ellison will come to light this way.
Every person living in the US today should read the book. Unfortunately, so many people living in this country are still invisible. Promising review: "This book was amazing! I found myself experiencing a range of emotions. One moment I was crying and the next I was laughing. Celie's journey was truly inspiring.
Witnessing her overcome her adversities and learn to love herself was powerful. Promising review: "A tremendously dense and insightful fictional account of some startling realities of Jamaica in the '70s and '80s. Beyond the storyline, the characters are frighteningly authentic, the dialogue, monologues and stream of consciousness draw you into the book until you are as exhausted as the final character. Marlon James wraps and traps you in his writing but you enjoy every minute of it. If you lived through that period in Jamaica it is a great deal of fun guessing, mixing and matching the fictional characters to the real ones.
It shows how art can explain reality — for real. Bravo Marlon James! She also shares the ups and downs of her relationship with husband Dwayne Wade, her life in Hollywood, and her journey through infertility.
Promising review: "This is an eye-opening book. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to begin understanding the intersection between women, race, and class, particularly as it relates to abolition and the women's suffrage movement. Davis writes in a compelling way that captures your attention. Promising review: "I heard of Warsan Shire when I first watched a poetry video she made about women being too wild to take and that being the reason a man didn't love her. Her words in this book are raw, heavy, and the greatest I have ever read.
Books with a similar title
She makes you physically feel the messages and stories that she tells, she makes you swallow whole bodies and countries in one line, along with all the complex narratives that come with them. In The Bluest Eye , the reader is thrown into a world many Americans didn't know existed. It tells a story about one girl's quest to change her eye color to look more traditionally beautiful. Meanwhile, throughout the story the reader is introduced to many individuals that all have unique stories of their own.
Just when you think that you dislike a character, you soon find out their life's story; your perception of them changes, albeit not always for the better. Promising review: "Assata Shakur's story is one that depicts struggle while simultaneously defying the odds. It is introspective, heartfelt, frustrating and insightful. For those searching for a story that details the revolutionary's escape or her numerous trials in a gossiping form will be certain to have wasted their time.
Instead, Assata: An Autobiography gives you the woman's experience in her most honest of voices, raw and powerful. Readers will also be schooled as she dedicates a few of her chapters to teaching the misinformed of America about its false history that we are led to believe as we go through the educational system.
This book without question is a great read and those who are truly interested in hearing Assata's personal accounts first hand will find this liberating as well as refreshing. Promising review: "True to his upbringing, Achebe tells his tragic hero's tale, incorporating proverbs and folktales, ultimately demonstrating how each of us finds ourselves being defined by our experiences and interactions with those we consider family, friends, and community.
