Summary

Confessions of a Token Black Girl is a snappy comedic tale framing Danielle's first-hand experiences in Wisconsin and other places as the perpetual 'token black girl,' fraught with dark moments and hate crimes. It's a coming-of-age-story but instead of finding herself during a road trip, Danielle found herself through the effects of racism. This book humorously chronicles Danielle's quest for understanding what black identity means to her - instead of what it means to everyone else.

She nailed it

Light hearted, but to the point. She nailed it. What it is to be the token non-stereotypical black girl. The narrator was perfect!

As a black women I’m not sure if I walked away with any new found feelings or understanding. I’m happy it was not longer...

Wow. My first full review of anything.

I've never read a book before that felt so much like it was written for me and my life. It was real, funny, and more relatable than any thing I can think of. Thank you, Danielle.

Insightful, Intelligent and Unparallel Take on Racism

Danielle Small did a superb job showcasing and verbalizing all the thought of most "time. Black girls" like myself. She put in to great sarcastic prospective just how ridiculous the phrase and unwanted role is to us women who are brilliant, bright and unique. Kudos!
