Beautiful Nappy-Headed Tar

“Beautiful Nappy-Headed Tar compassionately addresses biases about skin tone and hair texture. This is a story that celebrates the beauty of melanin in its varying, deepest and richest shades.”

Beautiful Nappy-Headed Tar

Can you imagine an entire race of people with skin as varied and radiant as the rainbow itself? Skin where the sun has kissed each shade differently, from very light to deeply dark. Beautiful Nappy-Headed Tar is a poetic exploration of brown skin tones from albino to tar with dips of mocha and vitiligo sprinkled in for added beauty. A confident girl with radiant dark skin and tightly coiled, daringly nappy hair is our guide to discovering the beauty of natural hair textures and a rainbow of brown skin tones. Images of positivity, appreciation, and acceptance boldly defy the cultural biases that have developed regarding African-American beauty standards. Beautiful Nappy-Headed Tar is a conversation starter and smile igniter celebrating the beauty and uniqueness of hair and skin. This book is For All the Beautiful People!
