Editorial Reviews

Review

«Ruth Nicole Brown provides a dazzlingly insightful look into the spatial practices cultivated by black girls who speak through hip-hop. The significance of Brown’s study is in its attention to Africana womanism (and the complex range of black feminist theory and third world feminisms), a ‘genderationally’ contingent philosophical framework that helps us to understand the political import of black girlhood practices.» (LaShonda Katrice Barnett, Sarah Lawrence College)
«Ruth Nicole Brown’s writing is poetry in motion. ‘Girl empowerer’ and impresario of ethnographic education, she entertains readers, masterfully capturing the embodied knowledge, intellectual observations, and urban artistry of black girlhood. This work inspires, uplifts, and ultimately counters the usual mis-education of and about black girls in after-school programs and rap sessions about teenage pregnancy or sexual abuse (...). Social scientists, social workers, and cultural critics alike will love this. Brown takes the game of what’s possible for academic studies to the next level.» (Kyra D. Gaunt, Ethnomusicologist and Associate Professor of Music and Anthropology, Baruch College, City University of New York)

This is an amazing review of SOLHOT a (non)program after school space for black girls where they are allowed to express themselves in ways that fit their own lives and share their own forms of knowing and being in the world. I assign it to my Women Studies classes because of its emphasis on girlhood and its use of a hip hop feminist pedagogy, which is every bit as amazing as it sounds. While based in very deep ideas, the text itself is accessible and always really impacts my students. I would highly recommend it.
