Lupita Nyong’o is writing a book to confront colorism in the minds of young black girls!

According to Blavity, she wants to give children with darker skin an empowering children’s book that will teach them lifelong values.

On Wednesday she posted to Instagram saying that her children’s book will focus on a young girl named Sulwe that struggles with her skin color and goes on starry-eyed adventures to awaken with a reimagined sense of beauty.

Sulwe, or “star” in Luo, is a 5-year-old Kenyan girl who tries to overcome her insecurities about having darker skin. With guidance from her mother, Sulwe takes a fantastical journey through the night’s sky that helps her embrace the beauty of her skin color. Way to go Lupita!
