Reviews

"Breathtaking. . . . Simply reading this book felt like an act of self-care for me--a breath of fresh air."-- (06/11/2018)
"This book will be of interest to scholars in many fields, such as Black feminist studies, transnational and diaspora studies, and the anthropology of tourism and mobility. I particularly want to highlight the book's contribution to affect studies, given Williams' careful attention to the ways in which her interlocutors' emotions are influenced by their racial, gendered, classed, and national subjectivities."-- (04/29/2019)
"The Pursuit of Happiness is an insightful and engrossing book about African-American women on topics few readers are privileged to hear about or understand."--Jualynne E. Dodson"American Journal of Sociology" (09/01/2019)
