Back in August, Kachifo (an imprint of Farafina) announced its forthcoming titles. One of which is Afro: The Girl with the Magical Hair by Okechuckwu Ofili, about a special girl who chooses to have natural hair in a land where an evil Queen makes everyone wear straight weaves. Inspired by Afro, my next celebratory post looks at three natural hair-themed books.
Afro is illustrated by Sharee Miller, who does amazingly 'fun and cute natural hair illustrations'. Here are a few of the illustrations Miller did for Afro. Gorgeous, much!
