How Black Feminists Are Changing the World From the Tweets to the Streets
In Reclaiming Our Space, social worker, activist, and cultural commentator Feminista Jones explores how Black women are changing culture, society, and the landscape of feminism by building digital communities and using social media as powerful platforms. (Available January 2019, Beacon Press).
From 2004 until the present, Feminista Jones has written pieces here and there, grabbing lines and inspiration from the world around her. Now, she offers her interpretation of poetry in a short collection of works from over more than a decade of writing.
Nicole and David are two 30-something, professional, Black Americans chasing their dreams and accomplishing their goals while investing in a romantic future together. On the surface, they appear to just like any other couple—they travel, work hard, and spend quality time with family and friends. Behind their masks, David and Nicole live an erotic, intense dynamic based on the complements of domination and submission and the peaks of pain and pleasure known as “The Life”.
Reclaiming Our Space:
“Sharp and provocative, the narrative is most powerful in its implication that, unless born to privilege, all Americans, regardless of race or gender, now “feel something akin to what Black people…have always experienced.” Understanding black (female) struggles is therefore critical for everyone.Smart, savvy, and unapologetically fierce.”

Push The Button:
“‘Push The Button’ is a unique take because it provides a healthier illustration of BDSM lifestyle and explores the dynamic between a black man and a black woman engaging in this type of love.”
