Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

This incisive memoir takes a penetrating look at race and the Christian faith while providing tools on how to cope with microaggressions and blatant racism. Brown perfectly and succinctly describes the corrosive weight of white supremacy embedded within American institutions, which African Americans and other people of color endure on a daily basis in schools, professional spaces, and places of worship. Brown's experiences and lifelong exploration of racial understanding and reconciliation offer a modern take on the double consciousness first written about by W.E.B. DuBois. From her days in elementary school, often as the only person of color in the room, to speaking on the national stage, Brown's lessons not only give allies the tools to do better but also provide advice for peers and up-and-comings on navigating hostile workplaces, lecture halls, and hearts and minds. This book is laced with gems that make it necessary reading for everyone, regardless of belief or identity. VERDICT Fans of Ta-Nehisi Coates's Between the World and Me and Reni Eddo-Lodge's Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race will find this candid debut edifying and essential.—Christina Vortia, Hype Lit, Land O'Lakes, FL

Review

“Powerful . . . Brown calls on readers to live their professed ideals rather than simply state them.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Takes readers on a journey through the racial divide in a way we've truly never seen before. Powerful, haunting, and absolutely impossible to put down, [Brown's] account of what it's like to grow up black, middle-class, and female in modern America is not to be missed.”PopSugar

“A deeply personal celebration of blackness that simultaneously sheds new light on racial injustice and inequality while offering hope for a better future.”Shondaland

“Moves the race conversation forward . . . Brown offers a powerful perspective on race with her first-hand account.”—WNYC

“I read Austin Channing Brown’s incredible book in one sitting. This is one that every black woman needs to read to be validated and every white person needs to read to receive some perspective . . . Brown has concisely articulated the burdens, questions, and frustrations that I find myself experiencing daily as a black woman.”Sojourners

“What a stunning debut from a seasoned racial justice leader. Austin does double duty by fiercely affirming blackness while simultaneously unveiling and demystifying the subtle effects of white supremacy among Christians. I trust Austin, I listen to Austin and I learn from Austin. I hope you will too.”—Christena Cleveland, professor at Duke University and author of Disunity in Christ
 
“Austin Channing Brown introduces herself as a master memoirist, delivering a manifesto on racism in America that will live on shelves besides Ta-Nehisi Coates and Michelle Alexander. This book will break open hearts and minds. It’s an example of how one woman can change the world by telling the truth about her life with unflinching, relentless courage.”—Glennon Doyle, bestselling author of Love Warrior and Carry On, Warrior, and president of Together Rising 
 
“I have laughed, I have held back tears, I have reflected with joy, hope, and hurt while reading. Austin captures perfectly the sentiment of many black people in America. She’s not only telling her story, she’s telling our story. Austin is a gift to the body and the culture.”—Lecrae, Grammy award-winning artist and bestselling author of Unashamed
 
“Austin is one of my most important teachers. I’m Still Here is devastating, beautiful, and haunting and it leaves no room for a tepid reaction. Her crystal clear voice will move you, push you, and break your heart. Prophetic and tender, I plan to put this book in every pair of hands I know and join her in the dismantling of white supremacy. She’s still here and I’m with her.”—Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author of Of Mess and Moxie and For the Love

“The movement toward diversity and forgiveness, [Brown] points out, too often involves white people seeking credit for recognizing the crimes of the past even as they do nothing to fix things today, and black people being required to provide endless absolution and information while calmly enduring dignity-eroding and rage-inducing injustices.”Library Journal (starred review)

“Brown passionately rejects facile reliance on ‘hope,’ stating that ‘in order for me to stay in this work, hope must die’ and ‘the death of hope gives way to a sadness that heals, to anger that inspires, to a wisdom that empowers me.’ An eloquent argument for meaningful reconciliation focused on racial injustice rather than white feelings.”Booklist

1.0 out of 5 stars A book based entirley on assumptions and experience alone
By Benjamin on September 2, 2019
First off, this book was a quick read; the chapters were short and flowed smoothly. As far as the content goes without going chapter by chapter, it can really all be summed up by saying this: "I've had many negative experiences with white people (racism, or some sort of prejudice) therefore most/all white are racist or prejudice". She talks about all the assumptions and bad/and or annoying things white people have done to her, yet then goes on to make assumptions about all white people, for example, she explains the origin of her name, a name that is not a typical female name and most white people think she is a white male. Obviously most people will think she's a male with a name like Austin, but she seems to think only white people will make this assumption, which isn't a crazy assumption. Austin also describes other experiences of not being able to relate to teachers when they give examples in class (such as referencing television shows, music, or hobbies), and while there is nothing wrong with being upset about that, she makes it seem as if it was personal, when in fact a white teacher will probably use an example from their personal lives or one that most of the children would understand, and since most of her classmates were white it makes sense.

One absurd part in the book talked about how Austin received an apology from a white woman who was a conference planner who felt bad for "making purposeful decisions that uplifted white women above women of color as presenters", while it was never stated what that exactly meant, Austin offers some suggestions about how she could avoid this in the future. One of these suggestions was to make "people of color the highest-paid presenters---a nod to their value, expertise, and the emotional labor of discussing race and justice". I almost fell out of my chair from laughing so hard. Seriously? Pay them more based on their race and supposedly "emotional labor"?? Right. What a joke.

The entire book is filled with assumptions and the victim hood mentality, and often times what seems like a strong dislike for all white people (although some of that is understandable) While I understand and have no problem with Austin writing about her experiences and how that made her feel, I do have a problem with assumptions and generalizations made from those experiences, no matter the race. There are far too many logical fallacies, assumptions, and just absurd statements to go over in a review, but this book is full of them.
