‘‘Black Panther’’ star, Lupita Nyongo’s , has announced her first book titled ‘‘Sulwe’’, which encourages young people, particularly girls to appreciate their dark skin.

Lupita Nyong’o took to her Instagram handle to announce her first book, “Sulwe,” and her fans couldn’t be more excited.

According to her Instagram page, the book is focused on helping children love the skin they’re in.

As someone who once struggled to accept and appreciate her dark skin, it is an important message that Nyong’o can share from firsthand experience.


In 2014, during her acceptance speech for best breakout performance at Essence magazine’s seventh annual Black Women in Hollywood luncheon, Lupita Nyongo’s talked about how she used to pray to God to “wake up lighter skinned.”

Lupita Nyongo’s disclosed that it wasn’t until she saw supermodel, Alek Wek, and the admiration people had for her in mainstream media that she began to embrace her beauty (hashtag representation matters).

With her debut book, she’ll encourage other kids and adults to do the same.
