Black & Blemished in America: The Impact of Colorism and Flawlessness on our Standard of Beauty
Growing up as a young black girl with a facial birthmark, I have a unique perspective on beauty and acceptance in America.
Debut Children's Book
Whether it's a birthmark, eczema, vitiligo, moles, scars or other markings...it can be difficult to find the beauty in being different.
Beautifully Blemished helps children see the unmatched beauty in their uniqueness and provides understanding to various skin conditions. Come along on this heartfelt journey as, together, we discover that whether speckled or spotted, bumpy or blotted, there is beauty in our "blemishes."
Growing up with a facial birthmark made me self-conscious and insecure in many ways. It's been a journey and has taken me well into my adult years to view my "blemish" as something uniquely beautiful. I'm on a mission to help others realize the same -- much sooner than I did!
