Charlene A. Carruthers talks about her hopes for her book Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist mandate for Radical Movements, which was published on Tuesday by Beacon Press: “My greatest hope is that black women and girls love this book, and appreciate this book,” she tells The GlowUp. “Because if black women and girls like it and love it, then everybody else will … if we’re into it, and we take it up, then that means we’re fighting for everybody, because that’s what we do. Even if we’re not perfect and we don’t get it right all the time, I’ve seen us be more receptive to change than any other group of people.”
