About the Author
Cherry Muhanji received her Ph.D. in English, anthropology, and African American World Studies from the University of Iowa. She grew up in Detroit and worked as a telephone lineman until she started university at the age of 40. The first edition of Her received a Ferro-Grumley award. Muhanji presently teaches English and the history of jazz in Oregon. Mattie Richardson received her Ph.D. in African American Studies from the UC Berkeley. In teaching Muhanji's Her she couldn't find any literary critical work on the text, so included a chapter in her own dissertation. She writes: "I have found Muhanji's novel to be an astonishing work of Black theorizing of gender, race and sexuality."
