McMillan Cottom’s first book, Lower Ed, is a deep dive into the fraught dynamics of the big-money industry that is for-profit colleges. And her latest endeavor, Thick, effortlessly fuses the political, the social, and the personal in a vibrant collection about what it means to be a black woman in America.
