Episode 139: Kenya Hunt on her book, "Girl Gurl Grrrl: On Womanhood and Belonging in the Age of Black Girl Magic"

On this episode of the en(gender)ed podcast, our guest is Kenya Hunt, award-winning writer, and author of her new book, an essay collection, entitled Girl, Gurl, Grrrl:  On Womanhood and Belonging in the Age of Black Girl Magic.  Our conversation explores the lives of Black women and cultural differences within the Black community, the trials and tribulations of being a mother, especially a mother to Black children, and the meaning of #BlackGirlMagic and what it really stands for.  In short, we examine themes of belonging, connection, resilience, and identity.

During our conversation, Kenya and I referenced the following resources:

  • Joan Morgan's book, When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost: A Hip-Hop Feminist Breaks It Down
  • CaShawn Thompson's coining of the term, "Black Girl Magic"
  • The importance of "mirrors and windows" and diversity and inclusion in children's texts
