You Can’t Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson


Rating – 5 stars

Date Finished – January 4, 2017

4/120 in 2017

Seeing as I love talented women and their memoirs AND the Two Dope Queens podcast, this book is totally up my alley. Phoebe Robinson’s voice shone through every inch of this book – she’s sharp, incredibly funny, and isn’t afraid to take on big topics like racism and sexism with a modern perspective. As a white woman, this was an incredibly valuable book to read – I’m interested in how feminism intersects with race, and Phoebe’s experience as a woman of color in America has helped me think more broadly about feminism. I laughed so much, cringed, and have been left thinking about her words for days after I read them. Last note – listen. to. the. audiobook. Robinson reads it herself. It’s the only way to go.
