A definite must-read. Moore speaks as a young woman of the hip-hop generation and herCover of When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost perspective on everything from sexism, to "strong Black Women," to "chickenhead envy." An honest, critical look at issues facing young Black women. While not claiming to speak for all Black women, Moore does integrate the wisdom and experiences of many of her peers, although in no way trying to represent them. There's a chapter devoted to hip hop and constant references to the culture, but the book's relevance speaks way beyond hip hop. Moore brings up some very difficult topics, but living in denial doesn't allow us to acknowledge the problems, and thus effectively address them.
