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. Black women's eloquent rage is what makes Serena Williams such a powerful tennis player. It's what makes Beyoncé's girl power anthems resonate so hard. It's what makes Michelle Obama an icon. Eloquent rage keeps us all honest and accountable. It reminds women that they don't have to settle for less.
When Cooper learned of her grandmother's eloquent rage about love, sex, and marriage in an epic and hilarious front-porch confrontation, her life was changed. And it took another intervention, this time staged by one of her homegirls, to turn Brittney into the fierce feminist she is today. In Brittney Cooper's world, neither mean girls nor f--kboys ever win. But homegirls emerge as heroes. This audiobook argues that ultimately feminism, friendship, and faith in one's own superpowers are all we really need to turn things right side up again.

🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 Eloquent AF
Can I just say I stan for Brittney Cooper!!!! I remember reading her articles from the Crunk Feminist Collective like this girl gets me. How did she know I was feeling this way? I pre-ordered the book a while ago and was so excited when I got an email saying that my book was ready for download. As a grad student with not much time to read, the audiobook was the next best thing because I can listen while on my way to class and work. Let me just say this book had me on an emotional rollercoaster. I cried, I smiled, I had a come to Jesus moment and I can honestly say it was exactly what I needed to push through with my studies this semester. Having been on a high first semester, second semester has been low, but this book has inspired me to keep pushing. Brittney thank you for the benediction. I can now go forward with JOY! 🙌🏾✊🏾

I couldn’t tear myself away from this steady stream of revelatory truth bombs, intriguing insight, and accessible braininess — made all the more powerful by the author’s narration. Everybody in America and elsewhere needs to read or hear this book, but since they won’t, and you’re the one here on this page considering it, do the world and yourself a favor and click “add to cart.”

A Must READ!
This is such a required reading for every and all human trying to navigate the rage we feel towards a system that we don't fully comprehend.
