In Sugar in the Raw: Voices of Young Black Girls in America, Rebecca Carroll profiles 15 of the more than 50 girls, ages 11-20, she interviewed throughout the country. Singly and together, they speak eloquently for the generation of young women coming of age in a complex world. Carroll writes in her introduction: ""many black girls don't know that individual accountability is not a myth or a crime: It is what makes it possible for us to live together on the planet as human beings."" Her work is enabling and enlightening. The foreword is by Ntozake Shange.
