Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cooper writes with fierce intelligence and fire...provocative and engaging." ―Roxane Gay, The Amazon Book Review, "Roxane Gay's Favorite Recent Reads"

"A dissertation on black women’s pain and possibility; an autobiography of a black woman’s complicated dance with feminism, overcoming otherness as a big black girl in a skinny-white-girl world, her mother’s triumph over violence, and her own journey from disappointment to black joy." ―Joy Reid, Cosmopolitan

"Cooper's Eloquent Rage is a fearless, phenomenal memoir of finding her voice as a black woman." ―The Root

"A breakthrough... this force of nature is becoming one of our fiercest voices in the new generation of African-American thinkers." ―Essence

"With straight-up vulnerability and humor sprinkled in, Cooper reminds readers that feminism, in essence, is about loving women...a for-us-by-us handbook tailor made to obliterate the idea of post-racialism in the Trump era." ―Bust Magazine

"[Cooper's] ardent book reminds us that what you build is infinitely more important than what you tear down―and that rage makes great mortar." ―Ms. Magazine

"Cooper says there's power in being mad as hell." ―Cosmopolitan

“An ambitious, electrifying memoir. Recommended for readers seeking contemporary social commentary that’s unrelenting yet humorous.” ―Library Journal (Starred Review)

“Sharp and always humane, Cooper's book suggests important ways in which feminism needs to evolve for the betterment not just of black women, but society as a whole. A timely and provocative book that shows ‘what you build is infinitely more important than what you tear down.’” ―Kirkus Reviews

"Cooper is both candid and vulnerable, and unwilling to suffer fools." ―Publisher's Weekly

"[Cooper's] words resonate beyond the limit of the page; her call carries forth indefinitely." ―Mark Anthony Neal, NewBlackMan (in Exile)

"In 2015, [Cooper and I] were part of a panel at Harvard on race and the media (Panama Jackson and Kimberly Foster from For Harriet were also there). Within the first five minutes of the conversation, I wanted to get up and take a seat in the audience. That’s how long it took for me to realize that everything I planned to say and every point I’d try to make, Brittney could say better and more powerfully, and somehow more succinctly and more descriptively." ―Damon Young, The Root

"Written with grace mixed with blunt honesty...readable, accessible, entertaining, brave, and important." ―Corvus Strigiform, The Weightless State Between Here and There

"Cooper personifies what Sonia Sanchez called "homegirl and hand-grenade" -- here, like the homegirl she is, Cooper gives us the uncensored truth about how America has become what it is today, and reminds us in no uncertain terms that Black people, and particularly Black women, have the brilliance, foresight, and vision to bring a different America to fruition, should we choose to use our powers for good rather than evil." ―Alicia Garza, Special Projects Director, National Domestic Workers Alliance and Co-Founder, Black Lives Matter

"Brittney Cooper is a national treasure. Eloquent Rage is as exhilarating as it is vulnerable, a crucial book that tackles friendship and feminism, Hillary Clinton and Sandra Bland, violence and family, sex and faith and race and gender, all with vibrant grace and honesty. Cooper is a generous writer, affording even those she rages against good humored compassion, but never letting any of us fully off the hook. This book is just so good." ―Rebecca Traister, New York Times bestselling author of All the Single Ladies

"Brittney Cooper is not just one of the leading black feminist public intellectuals of the day, she is the Black Feminist Prophet we urgently need. Her work is the most rigorous, honest, heartfelt, compassionate, and challenging of any cultural critic out there because she does not shy away from the areas of black life too long considered taboo. In taking the lives of black women and girls seriously, Eloquent Rage succeeds where too many have failed. For those still searching for ways to discuss black women's lives with nuance and love, Brittney Cooper's fiery brilliance is ready to light your path." ―Mychal Denzel Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching

“I was waiting for an Ida Wells, an Anna Julia Cooper, a bell hooks, a Patricia Hill Collins―an author who wouldn’t forget, ignore, or erase us black girls as they told their own story and that of the race and the nation. I was waiting and she has come―in Brittney Cooper.” ―Melissa Harris Perry

“Cooper may be the boldest young feminist writing today. Her critique is sharp, her love of Black people and Black culture is deep, and she will make you laugh out loud even as she kicks the clay feet out from under your cherished idols.” ―Michael Eric Dyson
