MSNBC commentator, columnist for The Nation, and Professor of Political Science at Tulane University, where she serves as founding director of the Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South, Melissa Harris-Perry examines black women's political and emotional responses to pervasive negative race and gender images in her new book, "Sister Citizen."
