Youth Communication - New York Center, Apr 1, 2010 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 139 pages
"African-American teens explore how race has shaped their lives. The authors are told they're 'too black' or 'not black enough'; they're insulted by family members and friends when they date outside their race; they're followed around by store clerks like criminals. But there's more than just the ugly side of race here. These reflective narratives show young people challenging stereotypes and creating their own definitions of beauty, community, and love"--P.  of cover.
