ANNIE: 16. African-American. Naturally independent and intelligent but sensitive to peer pressure. Interested in education and learning about the larger world. Filled with false bravado. Not one to start an argument, but not one to back away either. Desperate for connection, warmth, and belonging. Wants more from life, without any avenue to get it. Stuck in a vicious cycle.

TALISHA: 16. Derisive, abrasive ringleader of clique of girls. Tough as nails. Appears confident and knowledgeable. Uses people to get what she wants. Scared of being left all alone. Actors of color strongly encouraged to submit.

MARGIE: 16. The follower and the gossip. Fiercely loyal, but not very bright. Invested in a very narrow, naïve idea of the future. Finds comfort in material goods. Actors of color strongly encouraged to submit.

ANTWOINE: 23. African-American. Aspiring tattoo artist and current grocery store bagger. Introspective and poetic, but mocked by peers for his sensitivity. Looking for a chance to be heard and make a connection.

MALIK: 16. African-American. A teenager forced into the parent role by necessity. Smart, earnest, wily, and determined. Caring and sensitive, but willing to do whatever it takes to get out of the neighborhood.

KEERA: 16. African-American. The new girl at school. A tractable, evangelical outsider. Zealous and highly vocal in spreading The Word. Looking for a crumb of acceptance and inclusion.
