"Much of what twenty-first century culture tells black girls is not pretty: Don't wear this; don't smile at that; don't have an opinion; don't dream big. And most of all, don't love yourself. In response to such destructive ideas, internationally recognized poet Mahogany L. Browne challenges the condition of society by crafting an anthem of strength and magic undeniable in its bloom for all beautiful Black girls. Black Girl Magic is a journal from girlhood to womanhood and an invitation to readers to find magic in themselves" (front flap). Near fine / near fine. Item #4175
