Black Queer Hoe is a refreshing, unapologetic intervention into ongoing conversations about the line between sexual freedom and sexual exploitation.

Women’s sexuality is often used as a weapon against them. In this powerful debut, Britteney Black Rose Kapri lends her unmistakable voice to fraught questions of identity, sexuality, reclamation, and power, in a world that refuses Black Queer women permission to define their own lives and boundaries.

Britteney Black Rose Kapri is a Chicago performance poet and playwright. Currently she is an alumna turned Teaching Artist Fellow at Young Chicago Authors. Her work has been featured in Poetry Magazine, Button Poetry, Seven Scribes, and many other outlets, and anthologized in The BreakBeat Poets and The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 2: Black Girl Magic. She is a contributor to Black Nerd Problems, a Pink Door Retreat Fellow, and a 2015 Rona Jaffe Writers Award Recipient.

The poem Queer enough is one I want to shout from the top of the mountain

Black Queer Hoe is refreshing filled with unapologetic intervention into ongoing conversations about the line between sexual freedom and sexual exploitation. Women's sexuality is used as a weapon against them, Rose provides everything in her own words, is very clear and has so much raw honesty. She takes on such topics as sexual freedom, race, misogyny, masculinity, and no topic goes untouched. Each receives thorough attention I personally enjoyed being introduced to a fresh take, enlightened and a straight forward voice. The poem Queer enough is one I want to shout from the top of the mountain. Also you will find yourself gasping after each line, these poems serve as an introduction to our reflections.
