About the Book
Shut’em Down is the battle cry of Black women who have suffered abuse and trauma at the hands of corporate America. Composed of the stories of 20 Black women who have been impacted by racism in the workplace, this anthology not only offers us conversation starters on how to combat racism on the job, but also transformative ideas to create safer work spaces for Black professionals.
In the same way we as Black people accuse white Americans of throwing us under the bus, not supporting us in corporate America or any industry, the truth of the matter is we also create and add roadblocks for one another within our own race. To be clear, Black females are not looking for a pass, we are not asking to be held to a lesser standard or asking anyone to look the other way. Rather, we are simply expecting to be held to the same standards as our white counterparts, given real opportunities for development and promotion while also expecting to receive the acknowledgement we deserve for the hard work, endurance, and achievements we have made.
