Blay and Perkins
Zeba Blay is a film and culture critic who explores pop culture at the intersection of race, gender, and identity. Born in Accra, Ghana, she lives in the New York City area. This collection of essays, Carefree Black Girls, delves into the work and lasting achievements of influential Black women in American culture – writers, artists, actresses, dancers, hip-hop stars – whose contributions often come in the face of bigotry, misogyny, and stereotypes. Nichole Perkins is a writer and podcast host from Nashville, Tennessee, who examines the intersections of pop culture, race, sex, gender, and relationships. Sometimes I Trip On How Happy We Could Be is a collection of essays that highlights one Southern Black woman’s journey to self-realization through the lens of American pop culture, social media, dating, and Southern culture.
