Shades of Black (Library Binding)

Shades of Black By Carlos Anthony Cover Image
Usually Arrives in 3-5 Days


Romero, a Guyanese Canadian, is a sensitive kid who is just starting to attend an inner-city-style school with a large racialized population.

Romero falls in with a friendly crew but finds himself in trouble when a shot is fired in the school cafeteria--and he gets stuck with the gun. Meanwhile, the police, often using brutal tactics and targeting young Black males, try to find out who the shooter was.

To humanize and critique the Black male experience and dispel the myth that vulnerability and empathy equal weakness, Carlos Anthony draws on his own recent experiences as a teen in school in Etobicoke. His novel is an authentic--and rare--representation of Black youth culture and the experiences of Black teens in Canada's public schools.
