Why We Hate Black Women: Deconstructing the Paradox of Black Female Masculinity is a book that takes a critical look at the historical and contemporary lives of Black women in order to answer one question: Why are so many black women alone? Why are they abused, abandoned, betrayed, devalued and hated? This quest for truth opens up a cultural Pandora’s Box of issues that date back over 400 years. Whether we’re discussing corporate women, college women, church women or economically challenged women, their stories are the same. Whether they’ve reached the heights of an Oprah Winfrey or have struggled to make ends meet, there is one chord that binds them all together the stigma of what it means to be black and female in America.
