Austin Channing Brown enters the conversation on race, gender, class, and inequality in America, in particular discussing her experiences growing up as a black Christian woman. Her vocal delivery is sincere, languid, and well tempered. Often, she vocally balances her incredulity at the challenges she encounters as an intelligent black woman and her ability to be calm in the face of such abundant hostilities. Her memoir focuses on the friction between who she is and what the world assumes about her as she encounters her teachers, her co-workers, and strangers. She does more than call out the aggressions and stereotypes--she analyzes how and why such attempts perpetuate harm and disregard for people of color everywhere.
