Brittney Cooper is a national treasure. Eloquent Rage is as exhilarating as it is vulnerable, a crucial book that tackles friendship and feminism, Hillary Clinton and Sandra Bland, violence and family, sex and faith and race and gender, all with vibrant grace and honesty. Cooper is a generous writer, affording even those she rages against good humored compassion, but never letting any of us fully off the hook. This book is just so good. --Rebecca Traister, New York Times bestselling author of All the Single Ladies

 

Brittney Cooper is not just one of the leading black feminist public intellectuals of the day, she is the Black Feminist Prophet we urgently need. Her work is the most rigorous, honest, heartfelt, compassionate, and challenging of any cultural critic out there because she does not shy away from the areas of black life too long considered taboo. In taking the lives of black women and girls seriously, Eloquent Rage succeeds where too many have failed. For those still searching for ways to discuss black women's lives with nuance and love, Brittney Cooper's fiery brilliance is ready to light your path. --Mychal Denzel Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching

 

"I was waiting for an Ida Wells, an Anna Julia Cooper, a bell hooks, a Patricia Hill Collins--an author who wouldn't forget, ignore, or erase us black girls as they told their own story and that of the race and the nation. I was waiting and she has come--in Brittney Cooper." --Melissa Harris Perry

 

"Cooper may be the boldest young feminist writing today. Her critique is sharp, her love of Black people and Black culture is deep, and she will make you laugh out loud even as she kicks the clay feet out from under your cherished idols." --Michael Eric Dyson
