    In this groundbreaking book, Melissa V. Harris-Perry uses multiple methods of inquiry, including literary analysis, political theory, focus groups, surveys, and experimental research, to understand more deeply black women's political and emotional responses to pervasive negative race and gender images. Not a traditional political science work concerned with office-seeking, voting, or ideology, Sister Citizen is an examination of how African American women understand themselves as citizens and what they expect from political organizing.

    Would you listen to Sister Citizen again? Why?

    Yes, it is a very powerful and well articulated work on shame, finding one's own way while overcoming societal scapegoating.


    What about Lisa Reneé Pitts’s performance did you like?

    The poetry and quoted books were read beautifully.


    If you could give Sister Citizen a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Finding our own power in the crocked room.
