9781626563513: The Sisters Are Alright: Changing the Broken Narrative of Black Women in America

GOLD MEDALIST OF FOREWORD REVIEWS' 2015 INDIEFAB AWARDS IN WOMEN'S STUDIES

What's wrong with black women? Not a damned thing!

The Sisters Are Alright exposes anti–black-woman propaganda and shows how real black women are pushing back against distorted cartoon versions of themselves.

When African women arrived on American shores, the three-headed hydra—servile Mammy, angry Sapphire, and lascivious Jezebel—followed close behind. In the '60s, the Matriarch, the willfully unmarried baby machine leeching off the state, joined them. These stereotypes persist to this day through newspaper headlines, Sunday sermons, social media memes, cable punditry, government policies, and hit song lyrics. Emancipation may have happened more than 150 years ago, but America still won't let a sister be free from this coven of caricatures.

Tamara Winfrey Harris delves into marriage, motherhood, health, sexuality, beauty, and more, taking sharp aim at pervasive stereotypes about black women. She counters warped prejudices with the straight-up truth about being a black woman in America. “We have facets like diamonds,” she writes. “The trouble is the people who refuse to see us sparkling.”

Book Description :

Everyone seems to have an opinion about American black women―they need to get married, change their hair, act like “ladies,” and so on. Celebrated writer Tamara Winfrey Harris writes a searing account of being a black woman in America and explains why it’s time for black women to speak for themselves.

Description du livre BERRETT-KOEHLER, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What is wrong with black women? Not a damned thing but the biased lens most people use to view them, says Tamara Winfrey Harris. When African women arrived on American shores, the three-headed hydra of asexual and servile Mammy, angry and bestial Sapphire, and oversexed and lascivious Jezebel followed close behind. In the 60s, the Matriarch, the willfully unmarried baby machine leeching off the state, joined them. These caricatures persist-even in the enlightened 21st century-through newspaper headlines, Sunday sermons, social media memes, cable punditry, government policies, and Top 40 lyrics. The Sisters Are Alright delves into areas such as marriage, motherhood, health, sexuality, beauty, and more. And using progressive author analysis brought to life by the stories of real women, it reveals the effects of anti-black woman propaganda and how real black women are living their lives and pushing back against distorted cartoon versions of themselves. The book takes sharp aim at pervasive stereotypes about black women, replacing warped prejudices with the straight-up truth-the complicated but far-from-hopeless reality of being a black woman in America. We have facets like diamonds, Winfrey Harris writes. The trouble is the people who refuse to see us sparkling. N° de réf. du libraire AA39781626563513
