Product Details


“Holt offers particularly potent critiques of unconscious bias in the workplace and the many flaws inherent in white feminism. A commendable, colloquial perspective on a continually fraught topic.” —Kirkus

“Part memoir and part cultural critique, Holt’s collection of essays about Black millennial womanhood continues a very important conversation around how Black women and femmes can unlearn the harmful ideologies projected onto them by our white supremacist society, while also reclaiming our existence and empathizing with that of others who look like us.” —Refinery29

In Our Shoes is a collection of essays that shine a light on the issues Black millennial women face every day. Author Brianna Holt brilliantly tackles everything from code-switching and tone policing to the dangers of medical misinformation.” —The Root

“…dives deeply into the plights of Generation Z’s young Black females.” —Ebony

“In nine chapters, Holt breaks down the tricky existence faced by Black millennial women taking advice from their Baby Boomer and Gen X predecessors who are trailblazing new paths for young Black women.” —Dallas Observer

“Blending personal memoir with astute cultural analysis, “In Our Shoes” artfully employs the lens of pop culture and author Brianna Holt’s firsthand encounters to deconstruct the pervasive stereotypes and preconceived notions young Black women face in America.” —The Grio

“A spectacular deconstruction of that word, peeling back the layers, a must-read because this kind of serious, long conversation on the page is just so simply good for us, all of us.” —Caroline Kepnes, New York Times bestselling author of You

“Brianna Holt astutely observes that ‘some people feel a great discomfort when Black women advocate for their well-being, share the harm others have caused them, or even express their joy.’ In Our Shoes is a gorgeous, bold refutation of our white supremacist overculture’s insistence that Black women are a homogenous lot. Her book is also a tender love letter to Black womanhood itself.”—Sara Benincasa, actress and author of Real Artists Have Day Jobs
