"Dark Girls is a fascinating and controversial film that goes underneath the surface to explore the prejudices dark-skinned women face throughout the world. It explores the roots of classism, racism and the lack of self-esteem within a segment of cultures that span from America to the most remote corners of the globe. Women share their personal stories, touching on deeply ingrained beliefs and attitudes of society, while allowing generations to heal as they learn to love themselves for who they are."--Container
The pact by Jodi Picoult( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pact is the provocative true-life story of three friends from a rough Newark, New Jersey neighborhood. Rameck Hunt, Sampson Davis, and George Jenkins made a pact in high school to find a way to go to college and then medical school. The three doctors not only accomplished this, but they are now spreading the word to inspire other inner-city kids to stay off the streets and take the educational route to a better life. The Pact captures the pathos of the doctors' individual journeys, the integrity of their voices and the power of their rare friendship with each other. Their stories affirm the values that ultimately sustained and drove them: courage, tenacity and faith. This remarkable film pays tribute to the life of the mind and its power to turn dreams into reality
