Here at The Root we’ve always loved, praised, and centered Black literature in the broader conversation. Each week host Maiysha Kai sits down with an author we love to talk about their work, what inspires them, and what they hope to contribute to the culture at large. Guests so far include Nikole Hannah Jones, Brittney Cooper, Stacey Abrams, Ibram X. Kendi, Ijeoma Oluo, Morgan Jerkins, and Claudia Rankine.
This week we're sitting down with the lovely and multi-talented Gabrielle Union to talk about her latest memoir, You Got Anything Stronger? which is a follow-up to her 2017 New York Times bestselling memoir, We're Going to Need More Wine. Listen to hear Gabrielle talk about the intense experiences that inspired the book, the heavy realizations she's had about her career, and why she felt compelled to be so open and honest about her own life.
