Joy! Joy! Joy! The Anthem for Black Girls

Joy! Joy! Joy! The Anthem for Black Girls is the newest release from Black Diaries. This book engages readers from its opening in a rhythmic story about a girl overjoyed by her physical and cultural heritage. This picture book highlights the beauty of her kinky hair, wide nose, and indomitable joy as it tells the story of radical self-love and acceptance.
