The Guardian calls A Seat at the Table “a stately, sprawling celebration of black identity” that displays an “artful, keening single-mindedness.” Mashable gushed that “her ethereal voice demands attention and space that we must grant her in order to collectively move forward, even just a bit.” NPR hailed the work as “a floating melange of R&B, bold in its quiet and understated sounds, bolder in its message.”
