Here's a heartfelt memoir exploring why countless women, especially black women, give so much to the men in their lives at any cost.

 

Whether or not you agree with the things Donna Britt says, there is a lot of meaningful discussion in the pages of her book, not only about the men in black women's lives, but also issues that black women in general face growing up. There are truths in this book that can be applied to all women, regardless of race. It's a perspective, and it's an opening of discourse.

 

BROTHERS (AND ME)

By Donna Britt

 

Donna Britt has always been surrounded by men--her father, three brothers, two husbands, three sons, countless friends. She learned to give to them at an early age. But after her beloved brother Darrell's senseless killing by police 30 years ago, she began giving more, unconsciously seeking to help other men the way she couldn't help Darrell. BROTHERS (AND ME) navigates Britt's life through her relationships with men-resulting in a tender, funny and heartbreaking exploration of universal issues of gender and race. It asks: Why, for so long, did Britt-like millions of seemingly self-aware women-rarely put herself first? With attuned storytelling and hard-wrought introspection, Britt finds that even the sharpest woman may need reminding that giving to others requires giving to oneself.
