The Crunk Feminist Collection
by Robin M. Boylorn Author, Brittney C. Cooper Author and Susana M. Morris Author
These defining essays on Hip Hop Generation Feminism came out of the incredibly popular Crunk Feminism blog, run by a group of academics, self-described "critical homegirls" who wanted more immediate meaning and purpose—and results—than what their ivory tower day jobs and their racist, sexist everyday experiences in the world were offering. They engage about topics like sexism in religion, loving hip hop and ratchet music while hating the misogyny they sometimes find in it, and dozens of other topics including family, relationships, abuse, pop culture, police violence, self-care, smile politics, coming out, and depression. The overall effect is a tour de force of critical writing about contemporary culture and society, from multiple radical BIPOC, feminist, queer, and trans perspectives. Essential reading that encompasses our whole culture, finding new meanings and exploring new paths to liberation.
