SWIRL GIRL: Coming of Race in the USA reveals the raw truths about how a hard-headed, Mixed-race, “Black Power Flower Child” battles society—and sometimes her closest loved ones—to forger her identity on her own terms. As the USA undergoes its own racial growing pains, from the 1968 riots after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, to the historic 2008 election of the nation’s first Biracially Black president, TaRessa Stovall challenges popular stereotypes and fights nonstop pressures to contort, disguise, or deny her uncomfortable journey.
