The album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill sold over 420,000 copies in its first week, received ten Grammy nominations (winning five). Celebrating Twenty Years of Black Girlhood: The Lauryn Hill Reader critically engages the work of Ms. Hill, highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of the album. Beyond the album’s commercial success, Ms. Hill’s radical self-consciousness and exuberance for life led listeners through her Black girl journey of love, motherhood, admonition, redemption, spirituality, sexuality, politics, and nostalgia that affirmed the power of creativity, resistance, and the tradition of African storytelling. Ms. Hill’s album provides inspirational energies that serve as a foundational text for Black girlhood. In many ways it is the definitive work of Black girlhood for the Hip Hop generation and beyond because it opened our eyes to a holistic narrative of woman and mother. Twenty years after the release of the album, we pay tribute to this work by adding to the quilt of Black girls’ stories with the threads of feminist consciousness, which are particularly imperative in this space where we declare: Black girls matter.
Celebrating Twenty Years of Black Girlhood is the first book to academically engage the work of the incomparable Ms. Hill. It intellectually wrestles with the interdisciplinary nature of Ms. Hill’s album, centering the connection between the music of Ms. Hill and the lives of Black girls. The essays in this collection utilize personal narratives and professional pedagogies and invite students, scholars, and readers to reflect on how Ms. Hill’s album influenced their past, present, and future.
“Celebrating Twenty Years of Black Girlhood: The Lauryn Hill Reader is an education not to be missed! Each track is powerful on its own, but together, offer a collective portal for recalling just how hard we danced, loved, and decided differently, once The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill dropped. A critical care-informed community-inspired approach coupled with a loud love for Ms. Hill’s artistry, this reader exemplifies how devastatingly profound is Ms. Hill’s creative genius and impact. Just as it had to be, the editors curated deep truths and intimate knowledges about Hip Hop, healing, Black women’s artistry, Black girls’ lived experience, sacred wisdom, and critical pedagogy. Celebrating Twenty Years of Black Girlhood orchestrates a necessary intellectual beat drop, a pause from which to remember our memories, shape the present, and anticipate better tomorrows with all of our children telling us what is love and authoring more readers such as this that are absolutely worth the wait!”―Dr. Ruth Nicole Brown, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Gender and Women’s Studies and Education Policy, Organization and Leadership --This text refers to the paperback edition.
