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.
“Smart, savvy, and unapologetically fierce.”

Turning 40 often brings about a lot of introspective reflection--who am I? What have I done with my life? What have I learned? What's next for me? In I Don't Know Who Needs To Read This But...40 Lessons on Loving, Losing, and Living for Yourself, author Feminista Jones looks back over her own life and the lessons she has learned about love, dealing with grief and loss, and learning to prioritize and life for herself.
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”.
"'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."
