Blackgirl on Mars is a radical memoir that chronicles author, educator and activist Lesley-Ann Brown’s two years’ worth of travel searching for “home”.
“Lesley-Ann Brown has a brave voice and a keen eye, offering an unflinching view of what it means to be a Caribbean American woman living in Europe.”— Gary Younge, author of Another Day in the Death of America
As she travels across the US during the Black Lives Matter protests and Covid-19 pandemic and then to Trinidad and Tobago to attend the funeral of her grandmother, Brown tells her own life-story, as well as writing about race, gender, sexuality, and education, and ideas of home, family and healing. Both a radical political manifesto and a moving memoir about finding your place in the world, Blackgirl on Mars is about what it means to be a Black and Indigenous woman in Europe and the Americas in the twenty-first century.
Lesley-Ann Brown is a Caribbean American writer who is originally from Brooklyn, NY. She is the author of Decolonial Daughter: Letters from a Black Woman to her European Son. She currently resides in her own body.
