Black Feminist Politics from Kennedy to Trump
The reader’s political viewpoint will determine if they enjoy this book or not. The author pulls no punches and is very much the modern thinker. Black Feminist Politics from Kennedy to Trump examines how black feminist politics have become more and more a part of mainstream culture, and something often discussed and debated.
Duchess Harris delves into the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and other movements of its nature and deems them the main catalyst that moved black feminism into the mainstream, but she does not ignore the role of the media in airing black female voices. While mostly revolving around the 2016 election, the book makes some interesting claims.
Professor Harris takes a no-holds-barred approach, she goes after those in power and gives voice to marginalized groups. Someone who identifies as a Republican will find little joy in this book; they will most likely think it was written in anger. The liberal sector of the Democratic Party will enjoy this book and the truth it tells.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
