From the Publisher:
In 1972 Lorene Cary, a bright, ambitious black teenager from Philadelphia, was transplanted into the formerly all-white, all-male environs of the elite St. Pauls School in New Hampshire, where she became a scholarship student in a "boot camp" for future American leaders. Like any good student, she was determined to succeed. But Cary was also determined to succeed without selling out. This wonderfully frank and perceptive memoir describes the perils and ambiguities of that double role, in which failing calculus and winning a student election could both be interpreted as betrayals of ones skin. Black Ice is also a universally recognizable document of a woman's adolescence; it is, as Houston Baker says, "a journey into selfhood that resonates with sober reflection, intellignet passion, and joyous love."In 1972 Lorene Cary, a bright, ambitious teenager from Philadelphia, went as a scholarship student to a formerly all-white, all-male (and still unapologetically elite) school in New Hampshire. She was determined to suceed--without selling out.

"['Black Ice'] is probably [the] most moving African-American autobiographical narrative since Maya Angelou's celebrated 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings'." - Arnold Rampersad
