Another Black Girl Miracle by Tonya Ingram
Another Black Girl Miracle is a testimony. It is the documentation of healing. It is a tale of womanhood; its awkwardness and its rewards. Filled with themes of depression, sexuality, identity and wonder, this text not only examines what it means to be a young black girl in the world, but what it takes to participate in her own resurrection and rebirth.
