Coming of age in New York City.
Download to your Kindle (eBook)
In 1970, an African-American family moved from Vladeck City Housing Projects on Manhattan’s Lower East Side to a predominantly white, Jewish neighborhood along the East River. The advantages of exposing their only child to a middle class environment also created for her a struggle to straddle cultural lines of race and class.
Torn from a beloved private school and tossed into the murky depths of public education, bullied for not being “black enough” and walking the thin line of perpetual outsider in a new community, Black and Blintzes shapes a coming of age mosaic about crafting identity within and outside the boundaries of tribe.
