feature: danny brown announces that he is writing a children’s book for black girls

January 6, 2015

In a new interview, hip hop recording artist Danny Brown has announced that he is set to become a children’s author. Brown – who has a 13 year old daughter – is currently writing a Dr. Seuss-inspired children’s book targeted at black girls, tackling the self esteem issues that many of them face. Of the project, he says: “It’s really about self-esteem in black girls. You know how black women do so much — process their hair, change their eye color? It’s really about a little girl who does all these things to herself and changes herself, and she realizes she’s just better off the way she is.” Empowering our youth! Check out his interview, below.
