Editorial Reviews


Celebrating Twenty Years of Black Girlhood: The Lauryn Hill Reader is poised to reverberate the vibrations Lauryn Hill shot from her groundbreaking and still arguably unmatched album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Sankofa Waters, Evans-Winters, and Love have assembled a transdisciplinary group of boundary breaking scholar-artist-activist-educators. Drawing upon fields of study, including rhetoric, composition, critical pedagogy, Hiphop feminism, ethnomusicology, linguistics, Hiphop/education, literacy, literature and more, this text exemplifies culturally sustaining pedagogy, as it focuses upon the liberatory work achieved through Lauryn Hill’s music: Sista scholars in the academy deliver the theory and praxis of rhetoric from the womb; Hiphop scholars develop reciprocity of critical consciousness in community with their students; and Blackgirl scholars of education juxtapose the stories of Ntozake Shange with the songs of Lauryn Hill illuminating their autoethnographical commonalities, how they strike chords in the lives of Blackgirls through soulful Black language and culture, strumming our pain and healing our wounds sonically, lyrically, and spiritually with the power of vulnerability. In her introduction, Sankofa Waters proclaims The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill as ‘the Combahee soundtrack for the Blackgirl shaped by Hip Hop.…’ Whereas the authors represented in this text are carving out free spaces for all Black lives, in the same spirit as Sankofa Waters, I declare Celebrating Twenty Years of Black Girlhood a project of liberation that creates a type of space where all Black voices are hoisted by the voice of Lauryn Hill from Newark to Israel and beyond.”―Elaine Richardson, Artist, Advocate, Academic, Survivor, The Ohio State University

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
