This remarkable young lady's coloring book was inspired by a personal exercise Cheyenne participated in with her younger sisters. The coloring book is more than just an exercise to keep busy, but more of a tool to empower and encourage girls of color.

This 30-page coloring book is all about building a Black girl's confidence, self-esteem, and imagination through the use of positive affirmations and images that is representative of them.
