    Essays here run the gamut from dense theory to personal reflection from pedagogy and epistemology to how Michelle Obama constructs new mythic narrative with her public use of fashion, and how black gay men theologize on dance floors All the writings grapple with a rich history and a complex present context, to unpack what it means to build and teach womanist values, especially in the context of intersectionality.

    Like sketch shows, essay anthologies can feel hit and miss because of sharp variations in tone and content This is no exception, although the misses aren t so much failures as not grabbing my interest For me the best essays were those on Chinese religion, house music, and pedagogy, but I think there d be something for everyone here.

    I LOVED this collection, especially Monica Coleman s introduction and Elonda Clay s Confessions of a Theological Bitch It s a rich, relevant, sucker punch of a womanist read and a fabulous conversation piece next to the trajectory of womanist thought until now

    Although thought provoking, I didn t agree with the organization of the anthology I did enjoy a number of the selections, but had a hard time pinning down any cohesive themes across the anthology.
