She is the co-author of Dick Gregory's memoir, "Callus on My Soul," as well as the award-winning author of several books for young readers: "The Legend of Buddy Bush," "The Return of Buddy Bush," "Joseph's Grace," "I, Dred Scott" and "The Baptism." Her latest work is “Dark Girls” (HarperCollins), a full-color picture book companion to the NAACP-nominated documentary of the same name, which celebrates dark-skinned women from all walks of life.
