About the author

This book was written as a tool for parents and teachers to engage in conversations about skin color, melanin, ancestry, diversity, race, stereotypes and prejudice. The author aims to foster an awareness of the importance of teaching children the benefits of diversity and of being a global citizen.

The Story of METCO, is my second children's book written to tell the history of the Massachusetts METCO program, the 2nd longest running voluntary school integration program in the country.   The Story of METCO

Great News!! I just released my third Children's Book titled, "I am You are" was created to highlight the wonder, beauty and grace of boys, who may identify as Black and mixed race. My hope is that with more positive images and attributes we express to ourselves and to each other, we will diminish the impact of demeaning stereotypes on our beautiful boys.
