So what if it’s true that Black women are mad as hell? They have the right to be. In the Black feminist tradition of Audre Lorde, Brittney Cooper reminds us that anger is a powerful source of energy that can give us the strength to keep on fighting.

I had a really hard time getting into this book. I'm going to take the advice of Shamas and watch her TED talk.

Essential reading for every woman and every man, no matter if you’re black, brown, white, green, or fuschia! Read about her relationships with her mother, her grandmother, and her homegirls. Read about her relationships with black women and men, and with white women. Read her analysis of institutionalized religion (Grown Women Theology) and the 2015 US elections (White-Girl Tears).

The book has an easy and welcoming style. It’s funny. It’s shocking. It’s honest. It’s great to finish a book like this and say, I need to read more by her. Thank you Professor Brittney Cooper.

As you are read it, watch her 2017 TED talk The Racial Politics of Time (http://www.brittneycooper.com/). Also watch her reading from the book and conversing with the audience at Red Emma’s Bookstore in Baltimore (https://www.c-span.org/video/?444245-2/eloquent-rage).

Learn about those who own time, about world makers, and space takers. Learn about two zip codes in New Orleans, and two in Washington DC, where the average life spans differs by 20-25 years. Ask yourself how did it get to be like this? Should it continue to remain like this?
