BLACK AND BROWN GIRLS DESERVE IT
After decades of being told black hair isn't good enough, black and brown girls have earned the right to celebrate their natural hair in its natural state.
In the superhero world, black and brown girls rarely see superheroes that look like them, and when they do, the character is never the lead; they are always a part of an ensemble.
I wrote this book
to show Black and Brown girl the beauty their hair possess helps build confidence in themselves and their perception of themselves.
