My Audacious Quest For Justice

Memoirs of Nkechi Taifa

Can you confront the injustice and hypocrisies of society and still survive it? Can you be a "Woke Black Girl Magic Superwoman" and still have personal frailties? Can you challenge the dominant culture while remaining true to your political and spiritual beliefs, don an African name, keep your hair in its natural state, maintain a quality family life, and still kick ass?

Black Power, Black Lawyer describes the rebellious journey of a young woman coming of age during the Black Power era and the social justice lawyer she becomes.
