Publisher's Summary

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, heartbreaking 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.

Critic Reviews

"Kenya Hunt, the award-winning American journalist in London, provocatively threads cultural observations through relatable stories that illuminate our current cultural moment while transcending it." (Refinery29)

"An essential book to help in becoming an anti-racist ally. Put it on your reading list, pronto." (Dazed)

"Kenya has distilled her unique experience as a Black American woman in Britain and a global fashion director into the beautifully fluent and readable account that we all need. A book not just to read but to witness." (Afua Hirsch, author of Brit(ish))

Thought provoking, insightful and relatable! Loved every minute and as an American living in the UK it was nice to hear a similar perspective. I really enjoyed this book.

Girl, this book ❤

I loved this book. So glad I opted for the audio book. There are moment when out loud I would say "girl right!" especially at moments when the writer so clearly is arguing for the nuance of the Black woman experience. Thank you for this important work.
