Just Another Girl on the I.R.T.
Leslie Harris’ groundbreaking and award-winning debut tells the story of Chantel Mitchell (Ariyan Johnson), a hip, articulate, Black high-school girl in Brooklyn, who is determined not to become “just another girl on the IRT” (one of NYC’s subway lines).
She dreams of medical school, a family, and an escape from the generational poverty and street-corner life her friends seem to have accepted as their lot. But personal and sexual challenges confront Chantel on her way to fulfilling these dreams.
