Girl Gurl Grrrl By Kenya Hunt (Book Review)



Hey Lovelies,


I am so proud of myself for finishing this book after I saw it on Instagram I immediately added it to my reading list and knew I had to share a review!


This month I read, “Girl Gurl Grrrl: On Womanhood and Belonging in the Age of Black Girl Magic” by Kenya Hunt which touched on the challenges of being a Black woman in todays society.


I read a hardcover copy of "Girl Gurl Grrrl” and yes it did make me want to cry, jump for joy and scream "louder for the people in the back". You can find this provocative biography book on Audible and Amazon.


Now let's dive into this review!


Synopsis

 

Fashion Director of Grazia UK and award-winning American Journalist, Kenya Hunt delivers a raw and authentic depiction to Black Girl Magic, Black freedom, Black culture, Black joy and—most importantly— Black women.


Hunt tackles the issues that come with being an American in London, the cultural standards of Black beauty, and striving for #BlackExcellence in this memoir.


Through a collection of essays, Hunt explores Black womanhood, the unbearable pain of miscarriage, and the unspeakable loss of a brother to police brutality with grace and hope.

This book is a honest, relatable, and empowering must read.
