I am black
I am Unique
I am the creamy white frost in vanilla ice cream
and the milky smooth brown in a chocolate bar...

Photographic portraits and striking descriptions of varied skin tones, hair textures, and eye colours convey a strong sense of pride in a unique heritage. A joyous celebration of the rich diversity among African Americans.

This is an excellent book for young children. We are a human race. "If only we knew how mixed-up we really are."
