The Introduction recounts the experiences of the author in the study of racialized female-specific bullying, competition, and aggression in Black and White girls at the Underground Railroad High School. Describing a number of girls, the author demonstrates the tension between the two groups that is perpetuated by existing social norms and their social environment. It details the overall workings of the book in its examination of gender, race, and violence within the social sphere of schools.
