LITERATURE
Browne, Mahogany L.

Black Girl Magic

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Jess X. Snow. The literal and visual boldness in both verse and illustration delivers a powerful affirmation to African American girls. Offering an antidote to common stereotypes, Browne infuses her mature poem, best suited to reading aloud, with confidence and empowerment as she points black girls in the direction of their dreams. Snow's striking illustrations convey a message of unconditional self-love that is, indeed, magical.
