Finalist for an NAACP Image Award Finalist for a 2012 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award Praise for Sister Citizen: "After I read Melissa Harris-Perry's new effort, Sister Citizen ,two words sprang to my mind: Thank you. . . . [She] convincingly argues that tired images of Black women as castrating shrews, neck-rolling round-the-way girls, and long-suffering, asexual mammies undermine Black women's progress and power. . . . She wisely uses the powerful chorus of real women to echo her battle cry that all sisters must be seen as true citizens before this country can move forward."-Patrik Henry Bass, Essence "Melissa Harris-Perry is one of our most trenchant readers of modern black life. In Sister Citizen ,she gives new life to the idea that 'the personal is political.' This book will change the conversation about the rights, responsibilities, and burdens of citizenship."-Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University " Sister Citizencarefully documents the complex challenges and hurdles Black women face in the twenty-first century. Harris-Perry's book is both insightful and provocative. A must read for those interested in learning more about American politics."-Donna Brazile, political commentator for CNN and ABC News and former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee "A feminist manifesto endeavoring to free sisters forever from the cruel and very limiting ways in which they continue to be pigeonholed."-Kam Williams, Insight
