Womanish Kim McLarin
Courage and outrage inform 13 essays about black womanhood. Searing in its emotional honesty, Womanish is an essay collection by award-winning author Kim McLarin that explores what it means to be a black woman in today’s turbulent times. Writing with candor, wit and vulnerability on topics including dating after divorce, depression, parenting older children, the Obama’s, and the often fraught relations between white and black women, McLarin unveils herself at the crossroads of being black, female and middle-aged. Powerful and timely, Kim McLarin draws upon a lifetime of experiences to paint a portrait of a black woman trying to come to terms with the world around her, and of a society trying to come to terms with black women.
