Eloquent Rage by Brittney Cooper

Join us for an interactive book club discussion of Brittney Cooper's Eloquent Rage. In the Black feminist tradition of Audre Lorde, Brittney Cooper reminds us that anger is a powerful source of energy that can give us the strength to keep on fighting. Yet too often Black women's anger has been caricatured into an ugly and destructive force that threatens the civility and social fabric of American democracy. But Cooper shows us that there is more to the story than that. Black women's eloquent rage is what makes Serena Williams such a powerful tennis player. It's what makes Beyoncé's girl power anthems resonate so hard. It's what makes Michelle Obama an icon. Eloquent Rage keeps us all honest and accountable.These times demand the fierce honesty of Brittney Cooper, who reminds us that ultimately [everyone’s involvement in Black] feminism, friendship, and faith in one's own superpowers are all we really need to turn things right side up again.
