2 Winners will get a paperback of No Thanks: Black, Female and Living in the Martyr-Free Zone by Keturah Kendrick
Through eight humorous essays, Keturah Kendrick chronicles her journey to freedom. She shares the stories of other women who have freed themselves from the narrow definition of what makes a “proper woman.” Spotlighting the cultural bullying that dictates women must become mothers to the expectation that one’s spiritual path follows the traditions of previous generations, Kendrick imagines a world where black women make life choices that center on their needs and desires. She also examines the rising trend of women choosing to remain single and explores how such a choice is the antithesis to the trope of the sorrowful black woman who cannot find a man to grant her the prize of legal partnership. A mixture of memoir and cultural critique, No Thanks uses wit and insight to paint a picture of the twenty-first-century black woman who has unchained herself from what she is supposed to be. A black woman who has given herself permission to be whomever she wants to be.
About the Author
A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Keturah Kendrick’s home is the world. As a child of the south, she grew up receiving persistent and pervasive messages about her limitations as a girl and her deficiencies as an African American. However, the fires of destiny continually kept those poisonous messages at bay. When introduced to inspiring Black women authors, the fire was reignited and she knew her home could not confine her desire to soar. She was meant to be an unmarried Black woman, absent of children, living a joy-filled, fulfilling life as a resident of the world. Since then, she hasn’t looked back! Having lived on three continents, Keturah Kendrick presently lives between Shanghai, China, and New York City. She chronicles her life and those of ordinary Black women living extraordinary lives on her cutting-edge podcast, Unchained. Unbothered. In its third season, Unchained. Unbothered. features women from all walks of life who find common ground in their perspectives on 21st-century Black womanhood. Episodes feature interviews from an eclectic array of women representing a plethora of diverse lifestyles. While all sharing different experiences, each woman interviewed lays bare her challenges, triumphs, contradictions, pleasures, and everything in between. Keturah’s debut book, No Thanks: Black, Female, and Living in the Martyr-Free Zone (She Writes Press: June 2019), is a collection of essays chronicling her challenges and reflections on living while Black, woman, single and childfree around the globe. On the African continent, she was considered “the crazy American woman!” On the Asian continent, she was just “too much altogether!” Even in her American home, she was not quite the epitome of “good Black womanhood.” From page to page, voyage vicariously around the world as Keturah claims her freedom and lives unapologetically in it. Each discovery and rich revelation is sure to challenge your concept of what it means to be enough for yourself and others. Whether teaching, speaking, or simply reaching women with her quick wit and discerning style, Keturah Kendrick represents one of this century’s most significant thought leaders. Overall, her chief aim is to let each person know: “You are enough for you, and you are more than enough for me.”
