I love Bahni Turpin...BUT I would have preferred each essay to be read by a different voice. It was a little weird hearing these gloriously diverse written voices being read by the same human voice. Ideally, each essay would be read by its author, but I understand the logistical issues with that.
If not, I wish they had edited in a slightly longer pause at the conclusion of each essay/chapter. These essays inspire a lot of thought and contemplation, and on two occasions, I found I had missed the transition between essays because I was pondering something the previous essayist had written.
In terms of content, I loved the diversity of perspective. As a white woman, I am always in search of more ways to make my activism more intersectional. Although I would have found this book very therapeutic right after the election, I found it exhausting. I'm tired of looking backward - let's look forward and figure out how to build a better America for everyone, despite our challenges under the current administration.
