EM NEWS - Lupita Nyong'o's New Book Teaches Girls of Color to "Walk With Joy in Their Own Skin" 1

Lupita Nyong’o has always been an absolute beauty icon in our eyes, but her latest move is making us look up to her even more than we already did. The Black Panther star announced that she’s releasing her very own children’s book titled Sulwe, which translates to “star” in her native language of Luo. The animated picture book will aim to teach kids between the ages of 5 and 7 an empowering lesson about self-love and beauty, according to The New York Times.

“Sulwe is a dark skinned girl who goes on a starry-eyed adventure, and awakens with a re-imagined sense of beauty,” Lupita explained in an Instagram post about her upcoming book. “She encounters lessons that we learn as children and spend our lives unlearning.” She also noted how although the book is technically made for “the little ones,” she hopes it serves as “an inspiration for everyone to walk with joy in their own skin.”
