The Politics of Stereotyping and Shame of Black Womanhood

I'm so behind on my reading list it's not funny! But I keep running across books that I want to read...

One of those books is by Melissa Harris-Perry, political science professor at Tulane University and also seen as fill in anchor on MSNBC. Her new book is 'Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes and Black Women in America'. While I haven't read this yet, it is a treat listening to Perry talk about the book as she talks about the stereotypes of black women and how there political ramifications and what those ramification mean for all of us. She is a delightful intellect, humorous and totally engaging.

I know this is an hour long. But seriously, you will miss something that will help inform your perspective on politics, race and how we all contribute to making our society better...

Hope you enjoy it!
