Huff Post : Essays You Should Read

The Huffington Post listed The Most Important Writing From People Of Color In 2015 and while it’s not a comprehensive list, it definitely sums up a lot of the social and political issues that were addressed in mainstream media last year.

One of our favorites? The Huff Post gives a better synopsis than we ever could:

Doreen St. Felix, Pitchfork 
Rihanna’s empowering trap anthem “BBHM” from June is the focus of this great piece of analysis from Doreen St. Felix, who argues that ,”To be a black woman and genius, is to be perpetually owed.” The piece celebrates the idea of “black women recouping historical debts,” and calls out our discomfort with seeing financially independent black women who are “confrontationally untethered to men or to goods.”
