“Cotton is a refreshing collection capturing both the essence and struggle of black womanhood but marrying these experiences with new and old age experiences of race. Williams’ fluid but pointed words exude not just descriptions of experiences but the raw and in many cases unexposed feelings and emotions that accompany experiences of black womanhood and race. Any and all should pick up this read to not only reminisce and find a speckle of oneself sewn in each page, but also to experience and participate in the raw and needed exposure of blackness, womanhood and plain old life and how this impacts mental wellness and healthiness. A must read for all!”
