I enjoyed this audiobook, but I did not learn much from it. Most of what she talked about, I knew and was pondering about anyway. BUT, that doesn't mean that the book isn't worth reading. Brittney Cooper is blunt, honest, and does not pull any punches as she talks about Feminism and being Black in America. She talks about things that many Black kids face that their White peers don't. She talks about how poverty affects growing up and how it can make it so you must do the things you're scared of. She talks about how the school to prison pipeline has made it almost impossible for a generation of Black women to find partners.

It's important to learn these things and talk about them. Unless we acknowledge things - truths that are hard to hear - we will never cause real change to happen. I'm very glad I listened to this book even tho' I didn't really learn anything new. It's still important to emphasize the topics brought up in this book and it's still important to learn more so we can affect real change.

I happened to read this while Surviving R. Kelly was released and damn do they pair well. Brittney Cooper explains difficulties black women have in feminist circles and black advocates because both disregard black women. The essays are a mixture of her personal experiences and what she has learned through formal education and research.
