In Our Shoes: On Being a Young Black Woman in Not-So "Post-Racial" America
A memoir-in-essays about black millennial women and the stereotypes and preconceived notions they are expected to live up to, examined through the lens of Brianna’s lived experience and pop culture to help readers unlearn their biases and expand their worldviews.
Part-memoir, part cultural critique, IN OUR SHOES will walk readers through the common stereotypes and issues Black millennial women have to overcome in modern America in order to dismantle the myths about Black womanhood and explore the roles Black millennial women play, simply to survive.
In ten thoughtful chapters laced with searing commentary, reportage, personal anecdotes from Brianna's own life and interviews conducted with 'everyday' Black women, IN OUR SHOES hopes to illuminate readers on the complexities of existence for Black women and create a digestible, thought-provoking book that will help readers to learn, empathize, reflect, and act.
A personal history, a work of criticism, a piece of reporting, and a call to action IN OUR SHOES is a timely exploration of race and womanhood, that aims to entertain and inform.
