A vibrantly illustrated picture book celebrating of Black girl power from celebrated spoken-word poet Angela Bowden and rising-star artist Letitia Fraser.

Girly or braided with cowrie shells
Cornrows of history her magic tells
Of dreadlocks Bantu knots and stunning afros
Bonnets and wraps with a beautiful bow
Black Girl, Black Girl

A powerful message of self-love for melanated girls of all shades, hair textures, sizes, expressions, ages, and passions, this musical work of spoken-word poetry explores all the lives a Black girl can dream of – from athletics to STEAM-related careers, journalism and law, art and medicine, and more. Through vibrant, colourful artwork, young readers will recognize illustrations of famous Black women from across North America, like Simone Biles, Drs. Angela Davis, Mayann Francis, and Carrie Best, alongside local heroes from Nova Scotia’s historic Black communities.

Encouraging imagination, confidence, and being your whole authentic self, this bold and beautiful read-aloud will inspire Black girls everywhere to claim their space in the world, and lift each other up in the process.
