    Thank you Edelweiss+ and Haymarket Books for this advanced eGalley of "Black Queer Hoe". embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him colored was outdated. don't applaud yourselves. instead show a Black woman you appreciate them. all we want is reparations and to be left the f*ck alone. If ever there was a summary, then Britteney Black Rose Kapri pro Thank you Edelweiss+ and Haymarket Books for this advanced eGalley of "Black Queer Hoe".

If ever there was a summary, then Britteney Black Rose Kapri provides it, in her own words. 
This book isn't meant to be accessible (or acceptable)to everyone, Kapri makes that very clear. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't read it. In fact, because of its raw honesty, you should pick it up immediately! 
Kapri takes on multiple topics: toxic masculinity, sexual freedom, misogyny, cultural appropriation, street harassment, multiracial identity, sexual politics, etc. No topic goes untouched, and each one receives the unapologetic attention it deserves. 
I was forced to check my level of "wokeness" at the door a few times because, even as a Black woman, I know I have work to do in order to be a better advocate for those within my personal reach. 
"Black Queer Hoe" is a fresh take, on old and new topics of conversation, and is offered as part of Haymarket Book's Breakbeat Poets series--which is described as "committed to work that brings the aesthetic of hip-hop practice to the page. These books are a cipher for the fresh, with an eye always to the next". 
I thoroughly enjoyed being introduced to such an enlightened, fresh, and straight-forward voice, as a result of this venture, and I look forward to seeing what Kapri does next.

    I know I am not the intended audience for this book, but I enjoyed it. It deserves to be read by the people who see themselves in the poems and the people who don't share those experiences (and who, like me, shouldn't say half the words in the book). Britteney Black Rose Kapri knows when to take a moment, thought, or word (especially the three words in the title) and tease out its implications for days, but also how to cut through wordiness to get an the underlying truth in a more direct way (su I know I am not the intended audience for this book, but I enjoyed it.

Britteney Black Rose Kapri knows when to take a moment, thought, or word (especially the three words in the title) and tease out its implications for days, but also how to cut through wordiness to get an the underlying truth in a more direct way (such as in her series of cross-out poems). Despite or because of its brazenness, it is an inviting and often joyous book. These poems straddle a difficult line between unapologetic and vulnerable; they are unafraid of playfulness or honesty, of confession or performance. This collection should be celebrated at a time during which both vulnerability and brazenness, in poetry and in Black femmes, is scrutinized and dismissed. Though short and full of life, this collection is not trivial. If the title turns you off because you think it's not respectable, then this collection is worth reading to meditate on and to unpack the codes, baggage, and assumptions that inform your perceptions of those words and identities.

    One of the many fun things about reading this in public is when an old white dude insists on knowing what you're reading, so you tell him and watch the horror-confusion wash over him, slowly, from his New Balance sneakers all the way to his balding pate. I would read a granola recipe called Queer Black Hoe, so why wouldn't you want to read a whole book with that title? Do it.

    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and wow, this book. Preorder it now because it deserves to be read all over by everyone. That said, I feel very aware in writing this review that Black Queer Hoe isn't written *for me*. It's very clear that Black Rose Kapri writes for Black Femmes specifically and unapologetically - and I appreciate that so much about her work.

The line "Spent the past twenty-nine years working on being the best version of myself, which means loving the worst versions of myself" was a complete paradigm shift for me. The poem "Queer Enough" is one I want to shout from the mountaintops & put in everyone's hands. These are poems I'll be returning to & learning more from each time.

    finally! experimental poetry i understand! everyone i know irl - every black person anyway - talks just like it. it's so refreshing to see in a poetry book. sometimes - most of the time - i don't reread poetry books unless i'm upping my reading goal or an extended edition has been released but i will 10000000% read this one over and over and over again. this is so real, so raw, so authentic! this was one of few books lately i've sat down and enjoyed as opposed to looking at the location number w finally! experimental poetry i understand! everyone i know irl - every black person anyway - talks just like it. it's so refreshing to see in a poetry book. sometimes - most of the time - i don't reread poetry books unless i'm upping my reading goal or an extended edition has been released but i will 10000000% read this one over and over and over again. this is so real, so raw, so authentic! this was one of few books lately i've sat down and enjoyed as opposed to looking at the location number wondering when it's going to be over. (even had a poem about the parkers! i love that show). 100/100 recommend

    Perfect. And if you get a chance to see Kapri read live, fight tooth and nail to get there. I'll leave the last word to her, from "a reading guide: for white people reading my book": "embarrassing white folks and fuckboys is / my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am / not your therapist or here to validate that one time you / stood up to your grandpa by telling him colored was / outdated. don't applaud yourselves. instead show a Black / woman you appreciate them. all we want is Perfect.

    I had the privilege of attending a reading of Britteney's work at our book festival this month. I got a copy of the book afterwards. I'm reminded of the early 2000s when I first fell in love with spoken word poetry, particularly those writers who managed a plethora of emotions and experiences within their work. She is definitely one of the best I've ever had the opportunity to experience. I'm always happy to find poetry that resonates and challenges me, so I can't say enough good things about th I had the privilege of attending a reading of Britteney's work at our book festival this month.

    Unapologetically raw, Black Queer Hoe is beyond good. "Embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is an american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him colored was outdated. don't applaud yourselves. instead show a Black woman you appreciate them." Don't just read this book, LEARN from it.

    Not for the faint of heart, Britteney's collection of strong Black female poetry showcases a booming voice that dares you to ignore it. I laughed out loud and gasped a few times, but that's exactly the point--don't look away from any of these poems! These are in-your-face observations of a "Black Queer Hoe." Damn!

    Beautiful, powerful words. Read it. Buy a copy for your sister, your girlfriend, your favorite person. "Like all black Chicago women I have been preparing my womb to carry a stillborn. A baby to grow but not man. "

    This collection was not for me. However, I highly recommend heeding the author's advice and reading it aloud. It is there that one can appreciate the rhythm... the poetry... in this collection.
