Misogynoir Themed Books

It’s such an ingrain part of life that many people do not think about it if they are not women of color. I think these books will give you a better understanding what it is.

What can you do about misogynoir? Start by learning to recognize it — and then make a commitment to call it out whenever you spot it. One way that you can do this is by reading the work of Black women who openly resisted misogynoir, such as:

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Harriet Jacobs  

Sula, Toni Morrison

Quicksand and Passing, Nella Larsen  

Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston  

The Bluest Eye, Toni Morrison  

The Street, Ann Petry  

Kindred, Octavia Butler  

The Women of Brewster Place, Gloria Naylor  

The Color Purple, Alice Walker  

Eloquent Rage, Brittany Cooper  

Remaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era, Dr. Ashley D. Farmer  

Coal, Audre Lorde  

This Will Be My Undoing, Morgan Jenkins  

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    It is rather childish and very sexist and racist that women of color are still dealing with the same issues women of color were dealing with 100 years ago. It’s time for a change.

    Your site kick off message, comments or pages dealing with serious issues but one has no problem leaving commentary replies on non social issues posts.

    These books are about misogynistic toward black women, they aren’t misogynistic in and of themselves.
