Against White Feminism book cover
Against White Feminism
Notes on Disruption
Rafia Zakaria - 2021-08-17
Calificación de Goodreads
In "Against White Feminism," Rafia Zakaria exposes the long-standing affinity between white feminism and colonial, patriarchal, and white supremacist ideals. As an American Muslim woman, Zakaria champions a reconstruction of feminism, centering women of color in this counter-manifesto to white feminism, and refuting and reimagining its apolitical aspirations. Zakaria covers a range of topics, from the legacy of British feminist imperialist savior complex to the condescension of the white feminist-led "aid industrial complex," ultimately placing black and brown feminist thought at the forefront of her staggering, radical critique.

Explore twelve deep causes of this crisis, including the decline of mind-wandering and rising pollution, all of which have robbed us of our attention. Learn from Silicon Valley dissidents who learned to hack human attention, and veterinarians who diagnose dogs with ADHD. Discover a favela in Rio de Janeiro where everyone lost their attention in a particularly surreal way, and an office in New Zealand that discovered a remarkable technique to restore workers' productivity. Essential reading for anyone who struggles with constant device switching and information overload.

Desert Notebooks

Ben Ehrenreich - 2020-07-07
Calificación de Goodreads

Friday Black book cover
Friday Black
Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah - 2018-10-23
Calificación de Goodreads
Un centro comercial invadido por hordas de consumidores zombis durante el Black Friday; un parque temático en el que los blancos simulan que asesinan a presuntos delincuentes negros; un mundo postapocalíptico donde una catástrofe nuclear se repite cada día en un bucle eterno. Los doce impactantes relatos de este libro son un retrato distópico de la Norteamérica contemporánea que denuncian, entre la sátira y la crudeza, los horrores del consumismo, las desigualdades de clase, la brutalidad del racismo... En el corazón de estas historias, personas corrientes intentan mantener la sensatez y la integridad mientras todo se desmorona. Escrito con una afilada prosa que atrapa al lector para sacudirlo con fuerza, el extraordinario debut de Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah sobre la violencia, la injusticia y el absurdo de la realidad actual se ha convertido en un éxito en todo el mundo. Aclamado por autores como Colson Whitehead y George Saunders, ha sido comparado con clásicos de la talla de Kurt Vonnegut.

Malcom X - Autobiografía contada por Alex Haley (Ensayo)
Malcolm X - 2015-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1965)
Calificación de Goodreads
En la década de 1960, decisiva para el movimiento por los derechos civiles, numerosas voces de protesta y de cambio se elevaron por encima del estruendo de la historia y de las falsas promesas.Pero una de ellas sonaba con más urgencia y pasión que el resto: Malcolm X, el líder musulmán, instigador y anti-integracionista, calificado en alguna ocasión como el hombre más peligroso de América, desafiaba al mundo a escuchar y aprender la verdad como él la había experimentado. Fundó la Organización de la Unidad Afroamericana para enviar a los afroamericanos de todo el país un mensaje inspirador de orgullo, poder y autodeterminación.Un perdurable mensaje, tan relevante hoy como entonces. En esta ya clásica autobiografía, publicada originalmente en 1964, Malcolm X cuenta la extraordinaria historia de su vida y la efervescencia del movimiento musulmán negro al veterano escritor y periodista Alex Haley, ganador del premio Pulitzer por su libro Raíces. En una colaboración única, a través de más de cincuenta entrevistas, Haley escuchó y comprendió al más controvertido líder de su tiempo.Sus páginas definen la lucha afroamericana por la igualdad social y económica en el seno de la cultura americana, una batalla por la supervivencia. Malcolm X ofrece una fascinante perspectiva sobre las mentiras y limitaciones del sueño americano, y sobre el racismo de una sociedad que niega a sus ciudadanos no blancos la oportunidad de soñar. La declaración definitiva de un movimiento y un hombre cuyo trabajo nunca fue terminado, pero cuyo mensaje es atemporal.
