The College Diaries: How a Budding Black Feminist Found Her Voice explores the intersection of race, gender and culture. In her first novel, author DeAsia Paige highlights the college experience of a young Black woman trying to understand the world around her, while studying at a predominately white institution. Through experiences like Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States to the inaugural Women's March in 2016 to the moments in recent history where Black bodies perished from police brutality, this book gives a voice to those who are often silenced and ignored.
This must-read book is for every Black woman who may be starting their college journey or simply trying to understand how they fit into society - one that often excludes Black women's stories. Although Black women are often viewed as monolithic, here you'll discover perspectives and stories that convey how Black women can be more than just one thing, perhaps everything, if they want to be. The College Diaries was written in the hope of empowering Black women while encouraging them to share their stories fearlessly.
