A SUPERHERO

showcasing black girl magic and the versatility of black hair is just epic!

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.

Representation matters!!!

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.

Let’s face it, the market isn’t set-up to represent black boys in a positive light. They want to keep our boys lock in their boxes, with their ideas of how black boys should be represented in the world. Not to the best of standards either, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Look no further… We have it all right here! We have books, toys and special content made with the intent to empower, uplift and guide little black boys in a positive light!
