Plan your session
White Girl Within tells the dramatic tale of my journey to process my own radically evolved state to help others do the same. This book tells the story through dreams, dramatic re-enactments, semi-autobiographical reflections, and social critique.
This book is structured as a series of letters between my outer identity as a Black male and the “White girl” I feel within myself. Alongside this, readers can expect stories of chance encounters with key individuals — including a controversial and widely-known transracial figure.
Each one of us experiences a narrow sliver of humanity — I hope my story can add to the rich mosaic of humanity and encourage you to discover yours.
What will it take for Ronnie to transition from the Black man on the outside to better understand his repressed white female identity?
What Does it Take to Process Radically Evolved Identities?
Praise for White Girl Within
An unprecedented and moving first-person narrative about growing up transgracial– both transgender and transracial. With candor and courage, White Girl Within lays bare the struggle and journey of an inner White girl who clamors for self-expression behind a Black male exterior. A must-read for anyone whose identity remains socially unrecognized.

WHO IS THIS FOR?
While my intent when writing was for the youth and young adults, several organizations can benefit from reading this book as a group. Some of the communities that I have worked with in the past to nurture diversity include:
MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
School is hard enough on its own. As society continues to disregard identities and orientations, the added pressure can feel overwhelming.
NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS FOCUSED ON YOUTH AND FAMILY
Help the youth in your care or the people taking care of them to better understand what it means to take control of your identity.
Questions of gender and identity are extremely common after high school. Educators and students alike can find value in better acquainting themselves with these topics.
CORPORATE DIVERSITY EDUCATION
Looking to better understand the world around you as a company? This book is a fantastic way to broaden your knowledge and grow as a team.
You don’t need to be in a dedicated organization to have an interest in personal growth. Gather some friends together and grow as a group while learning about each of you individually.
