Debut author Dominique Furukawa pens a picture book love letter to every level of melanin, every curl pattern, every voice, and every Black girl everywhere.

Black girls, Black girls

rising still.

Shouting loud and proud and free,

that being a Black girl, Black girl

is a wondrous thing to be.


In an upbeat and rhythmic ode, Dominique Furukawa and Erika Lynne Jones celebrate Black girls in all their beauty and joy. Black Girls uplifts girls of every shade, size, and walk of life, reminding them that they are perfectly designed.


Perfect for fans of Magnificent Homespun Brown by Samara Cole Doyon and You Matter by Christian Robinson.
