Melissa Harris-Perry: Sister Citizen - Shame, Stereotypes & Black Women in Ameri
KPFA Radio 94.1FM presents

Melissa Harris-Perry
"Sister Citizen" - Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America Hosted by Blanche Richardson

"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.
Melissa Harris-Perry, professor of political science at Tulane University, is founding director of the Project on Gender, Race and Politics in the South.
Her previous book, Barbershops, Bibles, and BET: Everyday Talk and Black Political Thought won the W.E.B.Du Bois Book Award and 2005 Best Book Award from the American Political Science Association. She is a columnist for The Nation magazine and regularly appears on MSNBC.  She lives with her family in New Orleans.

"Sister Citizen carefully 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 & ABC

"Sister Citizen" brings into high relief the continuing struggle for black women to be recognized for who they really are, and makes visible for the first time both the psychological and political costs of that struggle. It is sure to become an instant classic for black women and all feminists, to spark intense debateand to accelerate the dismantling of barriers to full citizenship for all.
