mad black woman: the album

Black women are constantly told that they need to tone down their “angry Black woman” agenda and sit quietly in the face of their own abuse and subjugation. With the society we are living in today, I decided that it was time to talk about why I have every reason to be mad, and why I will never stop stepping outside the box I’m supposed to be in.

I present to you: mad black woman. An album and discussion series.
