Narrator Adenrele Ojo is a familiar, poetic voice for a heavy topic: black women's unique experiences with racism and sexism, and their role in standing with black men and white women in the fight against these oppressions. This classic book doesn't feel dated, though the buzzword "intersectionality" is never uttered. The audiobook is a primer on the study of black women in America, and Ojo narrates sensitively, though with gravity, concepts and arguments that may be hard for some listeners to swallow. Haven't the problems between black women and white women, black women and black men been resolved yet? The difference between the time that bell hooks wrote and now is the reception to her thesis and the space for varied, nuanced arguments.
