The Friends

Introduction

Rosa Cuthbert Guy (September 1, 1922[1] – June 3, 2012) was a Trinidad-born American writer who immigrated with her family as a child and grew up in the New York metropolitan area. Orphaned at a young age and raised in foster homes, she was acclaimed for her books of fiction for adults and young people that stressed supportive relationships.

She lived and worked in New York City, where she was among the founders of the Harlem Writers Guild in 1950, which was highly influential in encouraging African-American writers to gain publication with successful books. She died of cancer on June 3, 2012.[2]
