From when I was a Black Girl is a collection of poems that tell a story. For those of you already aware of the struggle, pain and endurance of the so called blacks in America, you're already familiar with this memoir. For this is their story, the story of a people returning to their natural heritage; reconnecting to that lost identity that has now become visible. This piece is a transformation of a young black nation, into a wise Israelite nation. It is the motive to all motivation. It is for every "colored girl who has considered suicide when the rainbow's not enough", and it "cries for the little boy."
