"Allred effectively demonstrates how Beyonc�'s work aligns with and advances many elements of black feminism. . . . An asset for educators interested in feminism and pop-culture pedagogy." --Kirkus Reviews

"A revelatory and nuanced look at one of the world's most treasured popular culture icons." --Independent Book Review

"Proving himself a worthy member of the BeyHive, Kevin Allred takes us on a journey through Beyonc�'s greatest hits and expansive career--peeling back their multiple layers to explore gender, race, sexuality, and power in today's modern world. A fun, engaging, and important read for long-time Beyonc� fans and newcomers alike." --Franchesca Ramsey, author of Well, That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs and Mistakes of an Accidental Activist

"Ain't I a Diva? explores the phenomenon of Beyonc� while explicitly championing not only her immense talent and grace but what we can learn from it. In this celebration of Beyonc�, and through her, other Black women, Allred is giving us room to be exactly who we are so that maybe we, too, can stop the world then carry on!" --Keah Brown, author of The Pretty One: On Life, Pop Culture, Disability, and Other Reasons to Fall in Love with Me

"Kevin Allred is a writer who approaches the topic of Beyonc�'s role and impact on the culture with nuance and skill. Keenly aware of his position and privilege as a white cis male, Allred centers and amplifies Black feminist voices in his writing as he explores themes of race, gender, and class in Beyonc�'s seminal career. Applying a feminist reading to her music, Allred illuminates and introduces ideas that are timelier now than ever before. This is a must-read for any fan of Beyonc� and of fascinating feminist discourse." --Zeba Blay, senior culture writer, HuffPost
