Black Ice

Lorene Cary

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

In 1972 Lorene Cary, a bright, ambitious black teenager from Philadelphia, was transplanted into the formerly all-white, all-male environs of the elite St. Paul's School in New Hampshire, where she became a scholarship student in a “boot camp” for future American leaders.-á-áLike any good student, she was determined to succeed.-á-áBut Cary was also determined to succeed without selling out.-á-áThis wonderfully frank and perceptive memoir describes the perils and ambiguities of that double role, in which failing calculus and winning a student election could both be interpreted as betrayals of one's skin.-á-áBlack Ice is also a universally recognizable document of a woman's adolescence; it is, as Houston Baker says, “a journey into selfhood that resonates with sober reflection, intellignet passion, and joyous love.”
