    Thank you Edelweiss+ and Haymarket Books for this advanced eGalley of "Black Queer Hoe". embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him colored was outdated. don't applaud yourselves. instead show a Black woman you appreciate them. all we want is reparations and to be left the f*ck alone. If ever there was a summary, then Britteney Black Rose Kapri pro Thank you Edelweiss+ and Haymarket Books for this advanced eGalley of "Black Queer Hoe".

If ever there was a summary, then Britteney Black Rose Kapri provides it, in her own words. 
This book isn't meant to be accessible (or acceptable)to everyone, Kapri makes that very clear. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't read it. In fact, because of its raw honesty, you should pick it up immediately! 
Kapri takes on multiple topics: toxic masculinity, sexual freedom, misogyny, cultural appropriation, street harassment, multiracial identity, sexual politics, etc. No topic goes untouched, and each one receives the unapologetic attention it deserves. 
I was forced to check my level of "wokeness" at the door a few times because, even as a Black woman, I know I have work to do in order to be a better advocate for those within my personal reach. 
"Black Queer Hoe" is a fresh take, on old and new topics of conversation, and is offered as part of Haymarket Book's Breakbeat Poets series--which is described as "committed to work that brings the aesthetic of hip-hop practice to the page. These books are a cipher for the fresh, with an eye always to the next". 
I thoroughly enjoyed being introduced to such an enlightened, fresh, and straight-forward voice, as a result of this venture, and I look forward to seeing what Kapri does next.

    One of the many fun things about reading this in public is when an old white dude insists on knowing what you're reading, so you tell him and watch the horror-confusion wash over him, slowly, from his New Balance sneakers all the way to his balding pate. I would read a granola recipe called Queer Black Hoe, so why wouldn't you want to read a whole book with that title? Do it.

    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and wow, this book. Preorder it now because it deserves to be read all over by everyone. That said, I feel very aware in writing this review that Black Queer Hoe isn't written *for me*. It's very clear that Black Rose Kapri writes for Black Femmes specifically and unapologetically - and I appreciate that so much about her work.

The line "Spent the past twenty-nine years working on being the best version of myself, which means loving the worst versions of myself" was a complete paradigm shift for me. The poem "Queer Enough" is one I want to shout from the mountaintops & put in everyone's hands. These are poems I'll be returning to & learning more from each time.

    Beautiful, powerful words. Read it. Buy a copy for your sister, your girlfriend, your favorite person. "Like all black Chicago women I have been preparing my womb to carry a stillborn. A baby to grow but not man. "

    This collection was not for me. However, I highly recommend heeding the author's advice and reading it aloud. It is there that one can appreciate the rhythm... the poetry... in this collection.

    Part Citizen, part Issa Rae rapping in the mirror. All good, startlingly original and fun and sad and alive, so so alive!
