Kendall’s voice is passionate, and moves easily between the personal and the political. She is at her strongest and most refreshing when rejecting the fetishisation of black women for being strong or fierce or the embodiment of “black girl magic”. Black girls aren’t magic, they aren’t to be reduced to sassy gifs. They are not Beyoncé, or Serena Williams. They are everyday people, navigating treacherous territory and often taking risks with no safety net.
