About the Book

Lyrical and beautifully illustrated, Dear Black Child is an anthem for young Black readers—one that defiantly centres the endless, joyful possibilities of Black children's futures.

Dear Black Child,

The universe is vast.

So take as much space as you can.

Stand in your own light.

Wear your crown with pride.

Let your name be your flag. Say it loud and say it proud. Wave it until it's woven in their mind.

From quiet moments in nature to lively school plays and neighbourhood walks, each spread in Dear Black Child depicts Black children standing in their power, taking up their space in the world, writing their own stories and, most important, being their own jubilant selves. Rahma Rodaah's words are vibrant and deeply moving. Combined with Lydia Mba's luminous illustrations, Dear Black Child is an inspirational picture book that begs to be read aloud, whether at storytime, bedtime or even graduation.
