Taylor interviews some original members of the Combahee River Collective, one of the first Black feminist groups that emerged from the Civil Rights movement. The interviewees include Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Narrator Lisa Reneé Pitts creates distinct voices for each of the interviewees that align well with their personalities. While the editorial choices are not always clear, sometimes including "ums" and "ahs," while at other times going for pages without any, Pitts integrates such bits perfectly into her narration. Between Taylor's interview subjects—Barbara Smith, Beverly Smith, and Demita Frazier—and Pitts's passionate narration, this audiobook delivers a much-needed oral history of Black feminism in the late twentieth century.
