              In Am I Black Enough For You?, Anita discusses her family story that stems from Wiradjuri country in central NSW to the eastern suburbs of Sydney where she has lived most of her life on the fringes of the La Perouse Aboriginal community. This is a contemporary story told in the s...ame vein as Alice Pung's Unpolished Gem. With a blend of her own memoirs and that of her mother's - Elsie Williams - biography, the story is told with a humorous, simple narrative style and social commentary throughout. Am I Black Enough For You? includes the story of Anita's own Aboriginal family and considesr the way in which Aboriginality is enmeshed with her daily life as a writer, educator, role model, sister, daughter, peer. Am I Black Enough for You? includes experiences travelling internationally as an Ambassador for Indigenous Australia, working in remote communities as a literacy role model, and her life with an increasing profile as an author and academic. Subjects covered include the entrenched racism in the Australian vernacular, the expectations Aboriginal people will be 'walking talking encyclopedias' in terms of Indigenous affairs, the construction of Aboriginality by government , tokenism, biculturalism, invisible whiteness, the tall-poppy syndrome and the rise of an Aboriginal middle-class in Australia and of course the recent Bolt case. Anita's memoir encompasses the political, social and cultural evolution of Aboriginal Australia through her personal lens, and how that has long impacted on her writing; from motivation to content. Am I Black Enough For You? is for teens to adults and is full of wit and humour.
