Colorism...We all are uniquely made. Various shades, complexities, and intricacies. All beautiful, no matter the hue. To be nurtured from conception and reaffirmed continuously is the essence of love abundantly.
I am always wary of celebrity books but this story by actress Lupita Nyong’o has a great message about colorism, which is one of the first things a child of color must contend with. And Harrison’s art is magnificent.
