'Powerful, intelligent and vital - one of the year's must-reads' Hannah Nathanson, Features Director, ELLE
Featuring contributions from Candice Carty-Williams, Jessica Horn, Ebele Okobi, Funmi Fetto and Freddie Harrel.
In the vein of Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist, but wholly its own, Girl is a provocative, heart-breaking and frequently hilarious collection of original essays on what it means to be black, a woman, a mother and a global citizen in today's ever-changing world. Black women have never been more visible or more publicly celebrated.
But for every new milestone, every magazine cover, every box office record smashed, the reality of everyday life remains a complex, nuanced, contradiction-laden experience. Award-winning journalist and American in London Kenya Hunt threads razor sharp cultural observation through evocative and relatable stories, both illuminating our current cultural moment and transcending it.
