Niyah Zuri author Anna Nyakana celebrates Pretty Brown Girl Day 2017 at Metacomet Elementary - Bloom

In celebration of Pretty Brown Girls Day 2017 and Women's History Month, I visited PBG Club #85 at Metacomet School in Bloomfield, CT. It was exciting to engage with 70 young girls to discuss and analyze the many layers of my main character Niyah Zuri. The end result was a discovery of themselves and that Niyah Zuri is a Pretty Brown Girl, just like all of them! Special thanks to PBG Club #85 educators/leaders Ms. Donna Mims and Ms. Regina Lester-Harriat for inviting me to join their kickoff meeting!
