Abstract: The stories in this collection are grouped together because each deals exclusively with black children and their reactions to a white-oriented black middle class world. Several characters are used in different stories for the purpose of suggesting the ambiguous nature of setting and situation of each. However, this is not to imply that any story is dependent upon another. Any thematic relationship or movement the reader may detect is intentional. The unscrutable wisdom found in the Proverbs of Wise Pickle at this point whisper, To Explicate is to Shatter, To Discover is to Know for Oneself.
