Summary
Shayla Lawson is major. She is on a mission to move black girls like herself from best-supporting actress to a starring role in the major narrative. Whether she's taking on workplace microaggressions or upending racist stereotypes about her home state of Kentucky, she looks for the side of the story that isn't always told, the places where the voices of black girls haven't been heard. The essays herein ask questions like: Why are black women invisible to AI? What is 'black girl magic?' And: How much magic does it take to land a Tinder date? With a unique mix of personal stories, pop culture observations, and insights into politics and history, Lawson sheds light on these questions, as well as the many ways black women and girls have influenced mainstream culture, from their style to their language, and even their art, and how 'major' they really are. Timely, enlightening, and wickedly sharp, this audiobook places black women at the center; no longer silenced, no longer the minority
