What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker: A Memoir in Essays

by Damon Young Author

In this collection of essays, author Damon Young chronicles all the ways that America is set on making his life that much harder just because he's Black. From everyday micro-aggressions to more severe and life threatening circumstances, Young has seen it all. This incisive and insightful collection documents the struggles Young has faced in great detail, and in great variety. Navigating his sexuality, watching his neighborhood become more gentrified, and dealing with his mother's death, all while Black, are just some of the concerns touched upon in this book, which Black audiences may relate to, and white audiences may open their eyes to. A must read in the post George Floyd era.
