Same Family, Different Colors Gets a Cover and a Pub Date!

Mark your calendars! Beacon Press will release Same Family, Different Colors: Confronting Colorism in America’s Diverse Families on October 4, 2016. I. Am. So. Excited! Yes, this will be my fourth book, but it still feels like a miracle. Like giving birth, the emotions involved with giving life to a book that started as a simple idea in your mind cannot be described with simple words. (And I’m a writer, so that’s saying a lot.) Not only has writing always been my passion, but the issues that this book explores – race, identity, diverse cultures and family life – are the things I care most about in the world. So, you can imagine my excitement. Or maybe you can’t, but trust, I am crazy excited about this book getting out into the world. I hope it receives a warm reception.

If you’re one of my 46 most devoted followers and you want to get your hands on a copy of SFDC as soon as possible, you can already pre-order the book. And you can tell your friends about it too. Thanks! And keep checking in for updates on the book’s progress and some exciting events that I’m planning closer to pub date.

I’m so excited…
