Morgan Jerkins' first essay collection is a reflection on her life and how identifying as black, a woman, and a feminist have affected her. Each essay reveals to her readers an intimate look at her life and her vulnerability. As someone who greatly enjoys personal essays, I related to many of her experiences ranging from street harassment to being a black woman in an Ivy League university.

Taken from her blog by the same name, this book by Reni Eddo Lodge highlights racism in the United Kingdom. She gives a history of slavery and police injustice against black British communities before going into how race is an issue in the daily lives of black British people. Those reading this book will see many similarities between the racial inequality in the U.K. and that in the United States.

Evie L. Ewing uses poetry, prose, and artwork to write about black girlhood and black life in Chicago. She takes the difficulties of growing up as a black girl and makes them beautiful and poignant in this, her first collection of work. Writing odes to some of her favorite musical artists such as Prince and Erykah Badu, she shows the fullness of black life and the art that has influenced her. Those who love the poetry and prose of Claudia Rankine will also love this book.
