Shades Of Black : A Celebration Of Our ChildrenBook
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...
Using simple poetic language and stunning photographs, Sandra and Myles Pinkney have created a remarkable book of affirmation for African American children. 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.
