Black Girl IRL

"Because Black women, we deserve leverage." ~ pg. 131

Everyone around the globe knows Oprah and Beyoncé. But there are regular Black women out here doing it all in real life (IRL). We handle things. We figure shit out. We speak up. We are leaders. We risk our opinions being the "voice of all Black women" at our jobs if we are the only one there. We are the regular girls wearing satin bonnets to sleep.

Gail Hamilton Azodo is the Black Girl IRL. In this new nonfiction book, she shares everything from motivational quotes, group texts with friends, work stories and advice. Most of all, she shares authentic stories of being an everyday Black woman. It is very relatable. So accurate and entertaining at times. I felt like I was in the room with her reliving experiences, saying repeatedly, "I know, girl!"

Thank you for the acknowledgment and the encouragement to being the best regular Black woman we can be.

Happy Pub Day, Gail Hamilton Azodo! Black Girl IRL is available today.
