    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest This is one of those books where it feels wrong to say that I "enjoyed" the book because it is a book about inequality and oppression, and anger and pain, and I didn't exactly have a grand old time reading it. On the other...

    I am not sure that I?ve related this much to a collection of essays in a very long time. Brittney Cooper?s Eloquent Rage is a indictment of neoliberal society and its myths of exceptionalism, but also a ?homegirl hem-up? for those of us struggling to correct both systemic oppre...

    Dr. Brittney Cooper is my shero. That is all. !!! https://africanbookaddict.com/2018/08... ...

    OH MY!!! Dr. Cooper EMPTIED THE CLIP IN THIS BRILLIANT PIECE OF LITERATURE!!! This is what we young women need today! There is rage but as the title professes it is eloquent. From beginning to end, top to bottom she leaves no stone unturned and goes about it both methodically and warml...

    Y'all need to run and get yourself a copy of this book because Dr. Brittney motherfucking Cooper did that! Damn this book is fantastic! ...

    Confession: Just when I thought that I could not love Brittney Cooper more, she published Eloquent Rage. It took me longer than normal to read this book because it was so raw, so personal, and so full of rage. Dr. Cooper's writing is so smooth - she goes in and out of the towers of aca...

    This book is everything, absolutely exhilarating! Brittney Cooper?s passion for black women and girls radiates throughout this book. It?s hard not to have your blood pressure go up a notch and your heart race a little faster while reading this book. I screamed out loud, laughed, sa...

    This books was EVERYTHING!! Do you hear me? Brittney Cooper was raw, comedic, on point and so relatable. She's just brilliant. There's no other way for me to describe it. I think everything that I've ever thought or wanted to say as it pertains to African Americans and especially wome...

    What an amazing piece of work. I am floored at how relatable and timely this book is. What I absolutely loved about this book is that black women remained the focal point of the book the entire time. Most of the issues Dr. Cooper discusses you see in the media and it is great and enrag...

    Phew. A phenomenal collection of essays that focuses on womanhood in the spheres of race, pop culture, respectability politics, the patriarchy, and more. What I super appreciated about this discussion of feminism is its consistent inclusion of trans women, and explicitly stating genera...

    So, so good. It?s a very easy listen, in that it?s written conversationally, and a very hard one, because the injustices she talks about are so upsetting and angering. I highly recommend it to everyone. You should read this book. Now. ...

    I borrowed this book from the library and I realized that I need my own copy. There is so much truth is this book that I relate to. This needs a permanent place on my shelf. ...

    This book left me both praising and being slightly offended by its narrative. Withhold your judgement, however: this ?offensiveness? is precisely why the book was so good. I was forced to remove my mask and step into the teachings and ponderings of the author, a Black woman. I conf...

    In an prose style both academically serious & yet casually accessible, Cooper gives readers a primer on the deep roots of feminism and how it can, ought to be practiced today. Her tone is at once personal, riveting, and urgent making these essays perhaps some of the best for those ...

    "When it came to books, my mother always obliged." Dr. Brittney Cooper writes about black girls and women, about power and anger and fear, and about why and how she's a Black Feminist. I prioritized reading her book after reading this interview and appreciating how she was focusing ...

    I'm surprised that I haven't heard much about Brittney Cooper's "Eloquent Rage" save for the recommended reference at my local library, but it was a read that I definitely found worthwhile in its overarching narrative. I was fortunate to pick up the audiobook which was wonderfully narr...

    Brittney is my girl and in this book she holds no punches. This is a necessary read for all women who see themselves as feminist. In her words "That is something that feminism needs to be clear on - that it isn't feminism if all women's concerns, particularly the most marginalized wome...

    An excellent essay collection that explicitly centers black women and black women's feminism. Lots of provocative, intelligent thinking and engagement with blackness, popular culture, black womanhood, respectability politics, and the uses of, as the title suggests, eloquent rage. I rea...

    2/20--this is now out! GO GET IT NOW!! I received an advanced copy of this through NetGalley. Views are my own. This is essential reading. This was a powerful, heartbreaking, hilarious, important read. I can't recommend it enough. I loved that while Cooper discusses topics ...

    4.5 stars A powerful and moving essay collection that will appeal to fans of Roxane Gay and Audre Lorde. Brittney Cooper writes about an array of cultural, personal, and political topics from the perspective of a black feminist. She addresses respectability politics and rage, friend...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest This is one of those books where it feels wrong to say that I "enjoyed" the book because it is a book about inequality and oppression, and anger and pain, and I didn't exactly have a grand old time reading it. On the other...

    My new Bible. Finally a book that puts definition or structure to the internal rage I?ve been feeling as a black women. Thank you Brittney for writing this. ...

    I am not sure that I?ve related this much to a collection of essays in a very long time. Brittney Cooper?s Eloquent Rage is a indictment of neoliberal society and its myths of exceptionalism, but also a ?homegirl hem-up? for those of us struggling to correct both systemic oppre...

    Dr. Brittney Cooper is my shero. That is all. !!! https://africanbookaddict.com/2018/08... ...

    OH MY!!! Dr. Cooper EMPTIED THE CLIP IN THIS BRILLIANT PIECE OF LITERATURE!!! This is what we young women need today! There is rage but as the title professes it is eloquent. From beginning to end, top to bottom she leaves no stone unturned and goes about it both methodically and warml...

    Dr. Brittney Cooper?s Eloquent Rage is brutally honest and is written with humor and grace. Cooper presents multiple ways race, gender, and class touch in the oppression of Black Women, and how we subsequently navigate in the world. She provides solid research on why we all should ow...

    Y'all need to run and get yourself a copy of this book because Dr. Brittney motherfucking Cooper did that! Damn this book is fantastic! ...

    Confession: Just when I thought that I could not love Brittney Cooper more, she published Eloquent Rage. It took me longer than normal to read this book because it was so raw, so personal, and so full of rage. Dr. Cooper's writing is so smooth - she goes in and out of the towers of aca...

    This book is everything, absolutely exhilarating! Brittney Cooper?s passion for black women and girls radiates throughout this book. It?s hard not to have your blood pressure go up a notch and your heart race a little faster while reading this book. I screamed out loud, laughed, sa...

    This books was EVERYTHING!! Do you hear me? Brittney Cooper was raw, comedic, on point and so relatable. She's just brilliant. There's no other way for me to describe it. I think everything that I've ever thought or wanted to say as it pertains to African Americans and especially wome...

    What an amazing piece of work. I am floored at how relatable and timely this book is. What I absolutely loved about this book is that black women remained the focal point of the book the entire time. Most of the issues Dr. Cooper discusses you see in the media and it is great and enrag...

    Phew. A phenomenal collection of essays that focuses on womanhood in the spheres of race, pop culture, respectability politics, the patriarchy, and more. What I super appreciated about this discussion of feminism is its consistent inclusion of trans women, and explicitly stating genera...

    So, so good. It?s a very easy listen, in that it?s written conversationally, and a very hard one, because the injustices she talks about are so upsetting and angering. I highly recommend it to everyone. You should read this book. Now. ...

    I borrowed this book from the library and I realized that I need my own copy. There is so much truth is this book that I relate to. This needs a permanent place on my shelf. ...

    This book left me both praising and being slightly offended by its narrative. Withhold your judgement, however: this ?offensiveness? is precisely why the book was so good. I was forced to remove my mask and step into the teachings and ponderings of the author, a Black woman. I conf...

    In an prose style both academically serious & yet casually accessible, Cooper gives readers a primer on the deep roots of feminism and how it can, ought to be practiced today. Her tone is at once personal, riveting, and urgent making these essays perhaps some of the best for those ...

    "When it came to books, my mother always obliged." Dr. Brittney Cooper writes about black girls and women, about power and anger and fear, and about why and how she's a Black Feminist. I prioritized reading her book after reading this interview and appreciating how she was focusing ...

    I'm surprised that I haven't heard much about Brittney Cooper's "Eloquent Rage" save for the recommended reference at my local library, but it was a read that I definitely found worthwhile in its overarching narrative. I was fortunate to pick up the audiobook which was wonderfully narr...

    It feels a little glib to give a book like this four stars without writing anything about why it moved me. In fact, I think it deserves a gigantic audience and universal admiration. But even writing a short Good Reads review of it feels to me at risk of seeming performatively woke. Nob...

    Phew. A phenomenal collection of essays that focuses on womanhood in the spheres of race, pop culture, respectability politics, the patriarchy, and more. What I super appreciated about this discussion of feminism is its consistent inclusion of trans women, and explicitly stating genera...

    So, so good. It?s a very easy listen, in that it?s written conversationally, and a very hard one, because the injustices she talks about are so upsetting and angering. I highly recommend it to everyone. You should read this book. Now. ...

    I borrowed this book from the library and I realized that I need my own copy. There is so much truth is this book that I relate to. This needs a permanent place on my shelf. ...

    This book left me both praising and being slightly offended by its narrative. Withhold your judgement, however: this ?offensiveness? is precisely why the book was so good. I was forced to remove my mask and step into the teachings and ponderings of the author, a Black woman. I conf...

    In an prose style both academically serious & yet casually accessible, Cooper gives readers a primer on the deep roots of feminism and how it can, ought to be practiced today. Her tone is at once personal, riveting, and urgent making these essays perhaps some of the best for those ...

    "When it came to books, my mother always obliged." Dr. Brittney Cooper writes about black girls and women, about power and anger and fear, and about why and how she's a Black Feminist. I prioritized reading her book after reading this interview and appreciating how she was focusing ...

    I'm surprised that I haven't heard much about Brittney Cooper's "Eloquent Rage" save for the recommended reference at my local library, but it was a read that I definitely found worthwhile in its overarching narrative. I was fortunate to pick up the audiobook which was wonderfully narr...

    Brittney is my girl and in this book she holds no punches. This is a necessary read for all women who see themselves as feminist. In her words "That is something that feminism needs to be clear on - that it isn't feminism if all women's concerns, particularly the most marginalized wome...

    Loved this book. Lots of powerful insights and beauty here. Also, just personally, this book is a good reminder to examine the white girl shit I take for granted and always need to be more critical of. ...

    5+* This is the book I expected when I read Morgan Jerkins? disappointing book ?This Will Be My Undoing?. The premise of both books is similar but the quality of the writing, and more importantly, the thinking, in this one is better by a magnitude of ten. Dr. Cooper is older, a ...

    It feels a little glib to give a book like this four stars without writing anything about why it moved me. In fact, I think it deserves a gigantic audience and universal admiration. But even writing a short Good Reads review of it feels to me at risk of seeming performatively woke. Nob...

    This book is exceptional brilliance! Professor Brittney Cooper manages to delve into structural inequalities with personal insight and depth that draws the reader in. Especially in this current social and political context, everyone needs to read this masterpiece! ...

    This is a book by a grown-ass woman written for other grown-ass women. This is a book for women who expect to be taken seriously. Brittney Cooper is angry! She has every reason to be and so do we. Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower covers a range of topics f...

    I am a Stan for this book for life. LISTEN TO THE AUDIO VERSION IF YOU CAN!!!! I have a few books that I listen to regularly, and this will be one of them. ...

    Brittney Cooper writes of her awakening to the power of well-directed, focused rage. Rage not as an out-of-control wildfire but directed toward social ill; in particular, she writes about feminism and racism and the intersection of the two. At first, Cooper distanced herself from fe...

    I loved this so much I bought it TWICE. Started listening on audio (narrated by the brilliant author herself) and halfway through went out and bought a hardcover too because I simply couldn't not invest in it. I just finished listening and I'm going to go home and flip through the prin...

    I am not sure that I?ve related this much to a collection of essays in a very long time. Brittney Cooper?s Eloquent Rage is a indictment of neoliberal society and its myths of exceptionalism, but also a ?homegirl hem-up? for those of us struggling to correct both systemic oppre...

    Confession: Just when I thought that I could not love Brittney Cooper more, she published Eloquent Rage. It took me longer than normal to read this book because it was so raw, so personal, and so full of rage. Dr. Cooper's writing is so smooth - she goes in and out of the towers of aca...
