TitleSulwe 

Author: Lupita Nyong 

Illustrator: Vashti Harrison 

Reviewer: Sarah Laughmiller 

Sulwe’s skin is darker than anyone in her family and anyone in her school. All she wants is to be lighter and brighter, like her mama and her sister.  

Sulwe does everything she can to try and make her skin lighter – until one night when she goes on an adventure in the night sky and everything changes.  

Sulwe learns there is something special and important and beautiful in being dark. She learns she is gorgeous, and her dark beauty has purpose. 

The images in this book are magnificent and breathtaking. The message resonates with young girls tremendously: It is OK to be different.  

Our differences give us meaning and purpose. We all have our own unique gifts and looks that make us all special, and that is what makes each young lady beautiful.  

Sulwe embraces how dark she is when she sees how special that makes her.
