Publisher's Summary

A past struggle for racial equity could achieve a profound future victory in this audacious short story about technology, hoodoo, and hope by a Nebula Award-winning author.

Burri is a fashion designer and icon with a biochemistry background. Her latest pieces are African inspired and crafted to touch the heart. They enable wearers to absorb nanorobotic memories and recount the stories of Black lives and forgiveness. Wenda doesn’t buy it. A protest performance artist, Wenda knows exploitation when she sees it. What she’s going to do with Burri’s breakthrough technology could, in the right hands, change race relations forever.

Nalo Hopkinson’s Clap Back is part of Black Stars, a multi-dimensional collection of speculative fiction from Black authors. Read or listen to them in a single sitting.

How will it end?

An intriguing question on how to end racism, but should that end come at the expense of our uniqueness?

For Us, By Her

The concept is one that I can get behind, and crave. This book asks "What if we had the power to take back Our Power?" And I loved every minute of it

Bizarre inflection

The reader's intonation is distractingly bad to the point that sentences are difficult to understand and the appropriate sense of emotion is completely lost. Dreadful acting. Several mispronunciations and strained delivery Story OK, I suppose. Creative premise.
