While Melanie Taylor does not fully embrace Jones's tough attitude and playfulness, she certainly narrates with some pizzazz. Jones discusses how central women of color have been to the work of equal rights movements--from suffrage to the Civil Rights movement, Black Lives Matter, and #MeToo. She says that digital technology has been pivotal in amplifying black women's voices but that this spotlight has come with increased targeting by trolls, white supremacists, and right wing media. Her blend of criticism, insight, frustration, and enthusiasm could be communicated more effectively by Taylor. Despite a limited energy level, she narrates in a clear and consistent manner that convey the book's content, if not its spirit. L.E. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
