Black and Brown girls are socialized to hide away from the sun to maintain or have a fairer complexion, rather than seeking out the sun as a nutrient. #SunFlowerChild changes this narrative by celebrating Black girlhood, and tackling colorism. Spurred from published research, #SunFlowerChild provides a remedy for colorism and color caste systems to encourage Black and Brown girls to love, care for, and protect their skin. #SunFlowerChild depicts a day in the life of an inner-city girl. While playing with her friends at the park, pool, and her front yard, the girls protect and love their skin, and use the sun as nourishment to grow, just like sunflowers. Support our girls by sowing into our girls by gifting a copy to your daughter, niece, or a special little girl in your life.
