Sorry, Not Sorry: Experiences of a Brown Woman in a White South Africa

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sorry, Not Sorry: Experiences of a Brown Woman in a White South Africa by Haji Mohamed Dawjee Book Resume:

Why don't white people understand that Converse tekkies are not just cool but a political statement to people of colour? Why is it that South Africans of colour don't really 'write what we like'? What's the deal with people pretending to be 'woke'? Is Islam really as antifeminist as is claimed? What does it feel like to be a brown woman in a white media corporation? And what life lessons can we learn from Bollywood movies? In Sorry, Not Sorry, Haji Mohamed Dawjee explores the often maddening experience of moving through post-apartheid South Africa as a woman of colour. In characteristically candid style, she pulls no punches when examining the social landscape: from arguing why she'd rather deal with an open racist than some liberal white people, to drawing on her own experience to convince readers that joining a cult is never a good idea. In the provocative voice that has made Mohamed Dawjee one of our country's most talked-about columnists, she offers observations laced with acerbic wit. Sorry, Not Sorry will make readers laugh, wince, nod, introspect and argue.

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald Book Resume:

‘Absolutely brilliant… I devoured it in a few hours because it was impossible to put down… Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions… Packed full of laughs... Had me laughing all the way through… Perfect.’ Goodreads Reviewer Is this all there is? I scraped the last dregs of Caramel Chew Chew ice cream out of the bottom of the tub with my finger and licked it. It left a sticky smear on my phone’s screen when I typed into Google, “How to find love, sex and happiness.” Charlotte has always been a good girl. But being good is getting boring… She’s not just stuck in a rut – she’s buried in it up to her chin. The only company she has in bed is the back catalogue of Netflix and falling in love feels like the stuff of fairy tales. So when she stumbles across a popular podcast, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, which challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she jumps at the chance to shake things up. Old Charlotte would never ask for a stranger’s number, go on a blind date or buy lacy lingerie… But New Charlotte is waving goodbye to her comfort zone (with a side order of margaritas). And it turns out that good things happen to bad girls… A fabulously feel-good novel that will make you laugh till you cry and leave you living life to the full, margarita in hand! If you’re a fan of romantic comedies by Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk or Matt Dunn, and love TV shows like Girls, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, you won’t be able to put down this hilarious read. Readers are absolutely loving Sorry Not Sorry: ‘OMG THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ROMANCE BOOKS I’VE EVER READ… I literally laughed out loud because it is just too relatable and too funny… Reminds me of Sophie Kinsella… CANNOT wait to read more books from this author!!’ Bookish Bibliophile, 5 stars ‘I don't know how much my review will do justice to this book with my sleep induced brain, but my excited heart won't allow me to rest until I have posted this. Have you ever felt that particular urge to share your excitement just after reading an amazing novel? Ever experienced that bubbling happiness that won't be subdued?... There is only one thing I can shout at you: READ IT! … An excellent light read that is hard to put down. It cost me a night's sleep, but that was so worth it. Happy reading everyone!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘I am sitting on a bus leaving New York and I couldn’t even wait to get in front of my laptop to write a review... This book was THAT. GOOD… I took this book slowly because it was one of those novels you know you’ll be sorry to see end. Hell, I even slacked on some finals to read instead of working on my dissertation. I’m not sorry that’s for sure ;)… That last minute twist???? I was screaming.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘Fantastic… So good I binge read it overnight… There was no way I was putting this book down once I started… The twists and turns kept me hooked… It had me laughing out loud, cringing and falling in love with the characters… So so good and you really have to one-click it as soon as you can.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 Stars ‘I adored this book… It made me laugh, crave margaritas... Funny, empowering, and has all the feels.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘The perfect pick-me-up… Delightful… Packed full of laughs… A good old giggle!’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘Wonderful!... I have never read any Sophie Ranald books but I am now going to be working my way through them. With the suggested margarita in hand, of course!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘I couldn’t put it down!’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘I devoured this book in one sitting and felt very connected to Charlotte (which is a must-have for me)… I loved this to pieces.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘I really loved this book!... Drew me in and didn't let me go.’ NetGalley Reviewer ‘Well what can I say!!... From the moment I started this book I was captured by the characters and their lives… Just when you think you know what is coming next Sophie manages to surprise you with an unexpected twist… I haven’t enjoyed a book so much in a very long time.’ NetGalley Reviewer, 5 stars ‘I laughed, cried, and laughed some more… HILARIOUS.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘Really loved this book!...

The Memo

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Memo by Minda Harts Book Resume:

Lean In for women of color: A no-BS look at the odds stacked against women of color in professional settings, from the wage gap to biases and micro-aggressions, with actionable takeaways The Memo is the much-needed career advice guide for women of color specifically, finally ending the one-size-fits-all approach of business books that lump together women across races and overlook the unique barriers to success for women of color. In a charismatic and relatable voice, Minda Harts brings her entrepreneurial experience as CEO of The Memo to the page, as well as her past career life as a fundraising consultant to top colleges across the country. With wit and candor, Harts begins by acknowledging the "ugly truths" that keep women of color from getting the proverbial seat at the table in corporate America: micro-aggressions, systemic racism, white privilege, etc. Harts validates that women aren't making up the discrimination they feel, even if it isn't always overt. From there, she gives straight talk on how to address these issues head on, and provides a roadmap to help women of color and their allies make real change to the system. With chapters on network-building, office politics, money and negotiation, The Memo covers all the basics that any good business book should. But through the author's lens, it offers support and long-overdue advice particularly for women of color.

The Glass Castle

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls Book Resume:

Journalist Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary and their four children lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children's imagination, teaching them how to embrace life fearlessly. Rose Mary painted and wrote and couldn't stand the responsibility of providing for her family. When the money ran out, the Walls retreated to the dismal West Virginia mining town Rex had tried to escape. As the dysfunction escalated, the children had to fend for themselves, supporting one another as they found the resources and will to leave home. Yet Walls describes her parents with deep affection in this tale of unconditional love in a family that, despite its profound flaws, gave her the fiery determination to carve out a successful life. -- From publisher description.

INCIDENTS IN THE LIFE OF A SLAVE GIRL

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

INCIDENTS IN THE LIFE OF A SLAVE GIRL by Harriet Jacobs Book Resume:

"Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" was one of the first books to address the struggle for freedom by female slaves; explore their struggles with sexual harassment and abuse; and their effort to protect their roles as women and mothers. After being overshadowed by the Civil War, the novel was rediscovered in the late 20th century and since then hasn't been out of print ever. It is one of the seminal books written on the theme of slavery from a woman's point of view and appreciated worldwide academically as well. Excerpt: "Reader be assured this narrative is no fiction. I am aware that some of my adventures may seem incredible; but they are, nevertheless, strictly true. I have not exaggerated the wrongs inflicted by Slavery; on the contrary, my descriptions fall far short of the facts. I have concealed the names of places, and given persons fictitious names. I had no motive for secrecy on my own account, but I deemed it kind and considerate towards others to pursue this course...." Harriet Jacobs (1813–1897) was an African-American writer who was formerly a fugitive slave. To save her family and her own identity from being found out, she used the pseudonym of Linda Brent and wrote secretly during the night.

Sorry Not Sorry

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sorry Not Sorry by Naya Rivera Book Resume:

"Navigating through youth and young adulthood isn't easy, and in Sorry Not Sorry, Naya Rivera shows us that we're not alone in the highs, lows, and in-betweens. Whether it's with love and dating, career and ambition, friends, or gossip, Naya inspires us to follow our own destiny and step over-or plod through-all the crap along the way. After her rise and fall from childhood stardom on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Airand Family Matters, barely eking her way through high school, a brief stint as a Hooters waitress, going through thick and thin with her mom/manager, and resurrecting her acting career as Santana Lopez on Glee, Naya emerged from these experiences with some key life lessons- Sorry-All those times I scrawled oI HATE MY MOMo in my journal. Moms and teenage daughters will never get along-we just have to realize it's nothing personal on either side. At-home highlights and DIY hair extensions. Some things are best left to the experts, and hair dye is one of them. Falling in love with the idea of a person, instead of the actual person. Not Sorry-That I don't always get along with everyone. Having people not like you is a risk you have to take to be real, and I'll take that over being fake any day. Boob job. People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than 10 years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror. It might have been the best $8K I've ever spent. Getting my financial disasters out of the way early-before I was married or had a family-so that the only credit score that I wrecked was my own. Even with a successful career and a family that she loves more than anything else, Naya says, oThere's still a thirteen-year-old girl inside of me making detailed lists of how I can improve, who's never sure of my own self-worth.o Sorry Not Sorryis for that thirteen-year-old in all of us."

Job

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Job by Edward L. Greenstein Book Resume:

This revelatory new translation of Job by one of the world's leading biblical scholars will reshape the way we read this canonical text The book of Job has often been called the greatest poem ever written. The book, in Edward Greenstein's characterization, is "a Wunderkind, a genius emerging out of the confluence of two literary streams" which "dazzles like Shakespeare with unrivaled vocabulary and a penchant for linguistic innovation." Despite the text's literary prestige and cultural prominence, no English translation has come close to conveying the proper sense of the original. The book has consequently been misunderstood in innumerable details and in its main themes. Edward Greenstein's new translation of Job is the culmination of decades of intensive research and painstaking philological and literary analysis, offering a major reinterpretation of this canonical text. Through his beautifully rendered translation and insightful introduction and commentary, Greenstein presents a new perspective: Job, he shows, was defiant of God until the end. The book is more about speaking truth to power than the problem of unjust suffering.

I'm Still Here

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

I'm Still Here by Austin Channing Brown Book Resume:

A REESE'S BOOK CLUB X HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK PICKTHE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'This book is my story about growing up in a Black girl's body.' From a leading voice on racial justice, an eye-opening account of growing up Black, Christian and female that exposes how white America's love affair with 'diversity' so often falls short of its ideals.Austin Channing Brown's first encounter with a racialized America came at age seven, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools and churches, Austin writes, 'I had to learn what it means to love Blackness,' a journey that led to a lifetime spent navigating America's racial divide as a writer, speaker and expert helping organisations practice genuine inclusion.In a time when nearly every institution (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claims to value diversity in its mission statement, Austin writes in breathtaking detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice. Her stories bear witness to the complexity of America's social fabric and invite the reader to confront apathy, recognise God's ongoing work in the world and discover how Blackness-if we let it-can save us all.'Austin Channing Brown introduces herself as a master memoirist. This book will break open hearts and minds. It's an example of how one woman can change the world by telling the truth about her life with unflinching, relentless courage' GLENNON DOYLE'Most people say, "that books has legs"; I measure the impact of a book by how often I throw it across the room. [Austin's book] has serious wings. It broke me open' BRENE BROWN

We Want to Do More Than Survive

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

We Want to Do More Than Survive by Bettina Love Book Resume:

A path to educational justice for all students - one that encourages teachers, parents, and their communities to adopt the rebellious spirit and bold and creative methods of abolitionists Educator Bettina Love argues that the U.S educational system is maintained by and profits from the suffering of children of color. Reformers offer survival tactics in the forms of test-taking skills, acronyms, grit labs, and character education which she calls the Education Survival Complex. To dismantle the educational survival complex and to achieve educational freedom--not reform--educators, parents, and community leaders must approach education through the imagination, determination, boldness and urgency of an abolitionist. Drawing on her experiences as a student and teacher, Love highlights young community leaders, artists and activists who are advocating for social change and inclusion. She persuasively argues that educators must teach students about racial violence, oppression, and how to make sustainable change in their communities through radical civic initiatives and movements. She concludes by showing how young leaders are expanding our ideas of civic engagement and intersectional justice by using the playbook of abolitionists like Ella Barker, Bayard Rustin, and Fannie Lou Hamer.

Between the World and Me

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates Book Resume:

Winner, Kirkus Prize for Non-Fiction, 2015 In the 150 years since the end of the Civil War and the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment, the story of race and America has remained a brutally simple one, written on flesh: it is the story of the black body, exploited to create the country's foundational wealth, violently segregated to unite a nation after a civil war, and, today, still disproportionately threatened, locked up and killed in the streets. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can America reckon with its fraught racial history? Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates’ attempt to answer those questions, presented in the form of a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son the story of his own awakening to the truth about history and race through a series of revelatory experiences: immersion in nationalist mythology as a child; engagement with history, poetry and love at Howard University; travels to Civil War battlefields and the South Side of Chicago; a journey to France that reorients his sense of the world; and pilgrimages to the homes of mothers whose children's lives have been taken as American plunder. Taken together, these stories map a winding path towards a kind of liberation—a journey from fear and confusion, to a full and honest understanding of the world as it is. Masterfully woven from lyrical personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me offers a powerful new framework for understanding America's history and current crisis, and a transcendent vision for a way forward. Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent for the Atlantic and the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle. Coates has received the National Magazine Award, the Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis Journalism, and the George Polk Award for his Atlantic cover story 'The Case for Reparations'. He lives in New York with his wife and son. ‘Coates offers this eloquent memoir as a letter to his teenage son, bearing witness to his own experiences and conveying passionate hopes for his son's life...this moving, potent testament might have been titled Black Lives Matter.’ Kirkus Reviews ‘I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. The language of Between the World and Me, like Coates’ journey, is visceral, eloquent and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory. This is required reading.’ Toni Morrison ‘Extraordinary...Ta-Nehisi Coates...writes an impassioned letter to his teenage son—a letter both loving and full of a parent’s dread—counselling him on the history of American violence against the black body, the young African-American’s extreme vulnerability to wrongful arrest, police violence, and disproportionate incarceration.’ David Remnick, New Yorker ‘A searing meditation on what it means to be black in America today...as compelling a portrait of a father–son relationship as Martin Amis’s Experience or Geoffrey Wolff’s The Duke of Deception.’ New York Times ‘Coates possesses a profoundly empathetic imagination and a tough intellect...Coates speaks to America, but Australia has reason to listen.’ Monthly ‘Heartbreaking, confronting, it draws power from understatement in dealing with race in America and the endless wrong-headed concept that whites are somehow entitled to subjugate everyone else.’ Capital ‘In our current global landscape it’s an essential perspective, regardless of your standpoint.’ Paperboy

Born A Crime

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Born A Crime by Trevor Noah Book Resume:

WINNER OF THE THURBER PRIZE The compelling, inspiring, (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. One of the comedy world's brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life. As host of the US hit show The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, he provides viewers around the globe with their nightly dose of biting satire, but here Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers a deeply personal, heartfelt and humorous look at the world that shaped him. Noah was born a crime, son of a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents' indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the first years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, take him away. A collection of eighteen personal stories, Born a Crime tells the story of a mischievous young boy growing into a restless young man as he struggles to find his place in a world where he was never supposed to exist. Born a Crime is equally the story of that young man's fearless, rebellious and fervently religious mother - a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence and abuse that ultimately threatens her own life. Whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during hard times, being thrown from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or just trying to survive the life-and-death pitfalls of dating in high school, Noah illuminates his curious world with an incisive wit and an unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a personal portrait of an unlikely childhood in a dangerous time, as moving and unforgettable as the very best memoirs and as funny as Noah's own hilarious stand-up. Born a Crime is a must read.

Men at Work: Australia's Parenthood Trap

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Men at Work: Australia's Parenthood Trap by Annabel Crabb Book Resume:

When New Zealand's prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, announced her pregnancy, the headlines raced around the world. But when Scott Morrison and Josh Frydenberg became the first prime minister and treasurer duo since the 1970s to take on their roles while bringing up young children, this detail passed largely without notice. Why do we still accept that fathers will be absent? Why do so few men take parental leave in this country? Why is flexible and part-time work still largely a female preserve? In the past half-century, women have revolutionised the way they work and live. But men's lives have changed remarkably little. Why? Is it because men don't want to change? Or is it because, every day in various ways, they are told they shouldn't? In Men at Work, Annabel Crabb deploys political observation, workplace research and her characteristic humour and intelligence to argue that gender equity cannot be achieved until men are as free to leave the workplace (when their lives demand it) as women are to enter it.

Mechanical geniuses, they make their living hot-rodding racing ships and revving up military grade war craft. Unfortunately, their Draconian customers aren't willing to go on a waiting list. But there's more to worry about for Jaide than fending off Skye's determined pursuit and revving up his captain's ship. Someone wants to kill her, her partner is falling for the Drac leader, and she's beginning to suspect there's more to their abduction then meets the eye. As everything she thought she knew is turned upside down, can she has to overcome her distrust of men and reach for a love as powerful as the chance to ride the stars?

Sufi Narratives of Intimacy

Sorry Not Sorry Experiences Of A Brown Woman In A White South Africa [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sufi Narratives of Intimacy by Sa'diyya Shaikh Book Resume:

Thirteenth-century Sufi poet, mystic, and legal scholar Muhyi al-Din ibn al-'Arabi gave deep and sustained attention to gender as integral to questions of human existence and moral personhood. Reading his works through a critical feminist lens, Sa'diyya Shaikh opens fertile spaces in which new and creative encounters with gender justice in Islam can take place. Grounding her work in Islamic epistemology, Shaikh attends to the ways in which Sufi metaphysics and theology might allow for fundamental shifts in Islamic gender ethics and legal formulations, addressing wide-ranging contemporary challenges including questions of women's rights in marriage and divorce, the politics of veiling, and women's leadership of ritual prayer. Shaikh deftly deconstructs traditional binaries between the spiritual and the political, private conceptions of spiritual development and public notions of social justice, and the realms of inner refinement and those of communal virtue. Drawing on the treasured works of Sufism, Shaikh raises a number of critical questions about the nature of selfhood, subjectivity, spirituality, and society to contribute richly to the prospects of Islamic feminism as well as feminist ethics more broadly.

Nervous Conditions by Tsitsi Dangarembga Book Resume:

'Immediately acclaimed by Alice Walker and Doris Lessing, Nervous Conditions has come to be considered one of Africa's most important novels of the twentieth century. Set in Rhodesia in the 1960s, almost twenty years before Zimbabwe won independence and ended white minority rule, the novel's heroine, Tambudzai Sigauke, embarks on her education. On her shoulders rest the economic hopes of her parents, siblings, and extended family, and within her burns the desire for "personhood," to no longer be part of such an "undistinguished humanity." With its searing observations, devastating exploration of the state of "not being", wicked humour and astonishing immersion into the mind of a young woman growing up and growing old before her time, the novel is a masterpiece.'

Leading in Black and White

Leading in Black and White by Ancella Livers,Keith Caver Book Resume:

Many blacks in the workplace face a set of dynamics unique to being African American in a traditionally white, male-dominated world. In this landmark book, authors Ancella Livers and Keith Caver-- co-facilitators of the Center for Creative Leadership's African-American Leadership Program for the past five years-- explain how the leadership experience for blacks is radically different from the experiences of their white colleagues. These differences, of which most white managers are unaware, can lead to miscues and distortions in communication and ultimately get in the way of effective performance and optimal productivity for organizations. In Leading in Black and White, the authors not only clearly explain how things go wrong, they also provide sensible solutions for both the white manager and the black manager on how to make them right.
