Stupid Black Girl

DUE IN JUNE: Powerfully witty and thoughtful, Aisha Redux’s Stupid Black Girl reveals her personal experience as an American African in New York. Born to West African parents, Redux discusses spirituality, sexuality, and the black experience from a unique and frequently ignored perspective. Redux’s writing is anything but passive, calling upon other black women to embrace their strength and beauty despite Eurocentric beauty standards. She spares no time shutting down those who dismiss African spirituality or the black perspective on racism in America. Stupid Black Girl is a radical look at embracing blackness in all forms, as well as knowing the difference between cherishing tradition and supporting oppressive systems. Recommended by Nikita
