Description - When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost by Joan Morgan

WHEN CHICKENHEADS COME HOME TO ROOST is a decidedly intimate look into the life of the modern black woman; a complex world where feminists often have not-so-clandestine affairs with the most sexist of men and where women who cherish their independence often prefer men who pick up the tab. In this new book journalist Joan Morgan does away with the tired victim/oppressor models that often dominates modern feminism and lays bare the issues of gender, sex, race and love that are not always black and white, but shades of grey. The author isn't afraid to ask difficult questions and challenges the very concepts of a feminism which seems to allow leniency to one gender whilst ignoring its inherent deficiencies. Morgan ushers in a voice that, like hip-hop, samples and layers many voices and injects its sensibilities into the old, changing it into something new, provocative and powerful.
