Product Description

Morgan Jerkins is only in her twenties, but she has already established herself as an insightful, brutally honest writer who isnt afraid of tackling tough, controversial subjects. In This Will Be My Undoing, she takes on perhaps one of the most provocative contemporary topics: What does it mean to beto live as, to exist asa black woman today? This is a book about black women, but its necessary reading for all Americans.Doubly disenfranchised by race and gender, often deprived of a place within the mostly white mainstream feminist movement, black women are objectified, silenced, and marginalized with devastating consequences, in ways both obvious and subtle, that are rarely acknowledged in our countrys larger discussion about inequality. In This Will Be My Undoing, Jerkins becomes both narrator and subject to expose the social, cultural, and historical story of black female oppression that influences the black community as well as the white, male-dominated world at large.Whether shes writing about Sailor Moon, Rachel Dolezal, the stigma of therapy, her complex relationship with her own physical body, the pain of dating when men say they dont see color, being a black visitor in Russia, the specter of the fast-tailed girl and the paradox of black female sexuality, or disabled black women in the context of the Black Girl Magic movement, Jerkins is compelling and revelatory.
