Beautiful

This book was so beautiful and empowering. As a light skinned mixed person, I have not experienced colorism the way that lupita has but I am so glad that she made this book. Representation is so incredibly important especially for younger more easily influenced children.This was absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way as is the author the beautiful Ms.Lupita Nyong’o.
