View Author Bio
Derricotte, Toi : University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Campus
Toi Derricotte is the author of four collections of poetry. She teaches at the University of Pittsburgh.
"The Black Notebooks is the most profound document I have read on racism in America today. . . . [It] is not just one of the best books on race I have ever read but just simply one of the best books I have ever read."
"A collection of personal journal entries accumulated over twenty years guides readers on an excursion through the mind of a woman who has been engaged in incessant warfare with the color of her skin . . . a candid and well-crafted exposé on racism."
"[In] The Black Notebooks Derricotte, a light-skinned black woman, focuses intensely and wonderfully on blackness . . . brilliant, devastating. . . . Would I recommend it? Absolutely. To whom? Anyone interested in writing. In race. In human relationship."
--Women's Review of Books
"The Black Notebooks is a sternly disciplined, unsentimental work."
--New York Times Book Review
"The elegant combination of defiance and devotion that is The Black Notebooks speaks volumes about how perceptions of racial identity remain sharply divided."
"What a hard book to have written and what an important book to read."
