From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-A compilation of short stories that offers unique perspectives on what it means to be young and black in America today.
Each entry is deftly woven and full of such complex humanity that teens will identify with and see some of their own struggles in these characters.
In Leah Henderson's "Warning: Color May Fade," a prep school girl examines the cost of being and remaining invisible in a world carefully crafted to exclude her.
Two girls take the peer pressure of naked selfies and turn it on its head in "Girl, Stop Playing" by Liara Tamani.
A group of young black boys dream up food creations heavily influenced by the flavors of other cultures in "The Ingredients" by Jason Reynolds.
This collection presents the beauty of black humanity in all its many forms. The teens in these tales are dealing with mental health issues, complicated family dynamics, sexuality and gender constraints, and being part of a marginalized group.
The entries offer a rich tableau of the black teen diaspora in an accessible way.

Somi - Black Enough (extrait de l'album Petite Afrique - 2017)
Am I black enough for you?
I don't talk the way you do
You call me names and try to hurt me
Spit on the ground, hopin' to curse me
They say blood
Is thicker than water
But you look like my great grandfather
Walk by, suck teeth
I'm not black enough for you.
Am I black enough for you?
You call my God a stranger too
Turnin' your eyes like you don't see me
You only speak if it's a Sunday
Our lines erased
With blood and water
Who's to say I'm not your last daugther
Turn the other cheek
'Til I'm black enough for you.
Am I black enough for you
They could shoot my children too
It don't matter how you see me
We're still running like the old days
Even if I'm not from here
Green cards don't save ya'
I still look just like your mama
Hands up, don't shoot
Blacker than you; Blacker than me
They matter, true; But so do we.
