About the Book: Being Black in a society developed by white men to benefit white men means constantly pushing back against systems that were not constructed for your flourishing. White privilege. White cultural norms. White beauty standards. White noise. You’re made to feel that your life doesn’t matter, your opinions aren’t valid, and your entire existence is too loud. It can feel like the whole world is telling you to shut up. To these forces, Ally Henny is here to say, “No. I am a loud Black woman, and I won’t shut up.” Ally knows what it’s like to navigate racism and racialized sexism, having spent most of her life in predominantly white spaces. She’s not taking it anymore, and she’s calling you to join her in resisting racism by speaking the truth–no matter the cost. In this compelling book, Ally tells her own story of finding her voice, pushing back against oppression, and embracing her unique perspective as a loud Black woman. And she invites you to find your voice in a world that tries to silence you.
