Product Details


“Glory Edim has curated a brilliant collection of essential American reading for the twenty-first-century reader. This book is smart, powerful, and complete.”—Min Jin Lee, author of the National Book Award finalist Pachinko and Free Food for Millionaires

“This book is a star chart, a map readers can use to navigate the world via the minds of brilliant black women writers. The essays extol us all to regard—and to celebrate—the written word anew.”—Angela Flournoy, author of The Turner House

“An eloquently provocative anthology . . . Candid and thoughtful from start to finish, [Glory] Edim’s collection amply celebrates the many paths black women have traveled on the road to self-definition. . . . In each essay, the contributor discusses her relationships to reading, books, and the world, yet each bears the unique experiential imprint of the woman who wrote it.”Kirkus Reviews

“This collection serves as a summoning of the past and a foreshadowing of the future—a continuum of Black girls and their stories, untattered, untorn, and, with the help of Glory Edim, no longer unheard. As far as I’m concerned, this should be read as a sacred text. It should be meditated on and transmuted into a sermon, because what you will find here is nothing less than a series of boisterous hallelujahs. Here, you will bear witness to a perpetual salvation song. And for that, we should all rejoice!”—Jason Reynolds, New York Times bestselling author of Long Way Down and All American Boys
