Description Island princesses. Absent fathers. Black girls in white bedrooms singing into hairbrushes, dreaming of a place in the sun. Oh My God I'm Black! recounts the powerful and charming story of an island woman's journey all the way south to ' cold miserable Melbourne', the birth of her two children their upbringing by their white grandmother, and their long road back to connect with their family culture and community.
