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. Far too often, Black women's anger has been caricatured into an ugly and destructive force that threatens the civility and social fabric of American democracy. But Cooper shows us that there is more to the story than that.

For feminists new and old, a joyous text about hard truths. It made me laugh out loud, cry, and fist bump the air.

I’d recommend it to everyone, especially in the audiobook format. It’s self-narrated by Brittney Cooper, and she killed it!
