Not All Black Girls Know How to Eat: A Story of Bulimia (Lawrence Hill Books, an imprint of Chicago Review Press, August 2009) ~ by Stephanie Covington Armstrong.

A raw, compelling memoir that describes the author’s struggle as a black woman with a disorder that is consistently portrayed as a white woman’s problem. Not All Black Girls Know How to Eat traces Armstrong’s upbringing during the 1970s in the rough Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. She grew up poor and hungry in a single-parent household, and foster care, sexual abuse and overwhelming insecurity defined her early years.

“Covington Armstrong's story emboldens women of all colors who might otherwise have
remained quiet to voice their lived experiences with food.” —Ms. Magazine
