THE UNBOXING OF A BLACK GIRL, written by Angela Shante

I need to start writing of Angela Shante’s courageous lyrical memoir THE UNBOXING OF A BLACK GIRL with a trigger warning for she writes powerfully about leaving her innocence in a world of objectification and adultification and the sexual assault that exploited her. There is incredible balance in this book for the women who surround and nurture young Angela, many of whom have their own issues, are often tender, supportive as if hoping to help her escape some of the boxes into which they’ve been shoved.
