Summary

Joan Morgan offers a provocative and powerful look into the life of the modern black woman: a complex world in which feminists often have not-so-clandestine affairs with the most sexist of men, where women who treasure their independence frequently prefer men who pick up the tab, where the deluge of babymothers and babyfathers reminds black women who long for marriage that traditional nuclear families are a reality for less than 40 percent of the population, and where black women are forced to make sense of a world where truth is no longer black and white but subtle, intriguing shades of gray.

Still fresh, funny, and irreverent, When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost gives voice to the most intimate thoughts of the post-civil rights, post-feminist, post-soul generation.

Must Read!!

This book was a chronicling of a journey through black and feminist womanhood! Worthy of reading and studying. A great start point to better accepting yourself regardless of how you classify yourself. I am a fan!

For those with the courage to think

I was both offended and fell in love with this book. Definitely the best audible I've ever heard - so we'll done ladies. Replayed the beginning of Chapter six a few times.

Required reading for every black girl and woman.

Finally, someone gives simple language to the complicated relationship between the black woman & the black man.

Necessary

loved it. If you are struggling to accept one narrow definition of the term "feminist", then this book is for you.
