GENRE: Children’s Activity Book / Multicultural Issues
RELEASE DATE: February 22, 2022

Help children celebrate the incredible range of hues all around them with this activity book that provides an interactive, engaging, and age-appropriate way to navigate conversations around skin tone, race, and racism.

Every person’s skin has a particular shade—or hue—that we can appreciate. Children naturally wonder: Why are there so many skin colors? Why do I look a lot like some people and different from others? Which words best describe my skin color?

But sometimes we feel uncomfortable talking about skin tone, ethnicity, and race. That’s about to change! Inside these pages, kids will get to explore the ways each of us is uniquely designed and discover positive, creative ways to think and talk about the wonderful diversity of hues found in humanity.

Crafted by an experienced educator and advocate for antiracism, Hues of You is divided into four main sections: Hues of You, Hues of Your Family, Hues of Your Ancestors, and Hues of Your Friends. This activity book offers a smart and honest starting point to spark natural, effective, and meaningful conversations in our families, schools, and communities.

Dr. Lucretia Berry is the founder of Brownicity (pronounced like ethnicity), an agency dedicated to racial healing and antiracism. She is also the anti-race/ism curriculum specialist for Community School of Davidson in North Carolina; a contributor to (in)courage; a speaker at TEDx Talk and Q Ideas Charlotte; a member of hope*writers; and a senior consultant for Point Made Learning’s The American Dream Game. She and her husband, Nathan, are the parents of three little girls. For more information, visit and follow the author on Instagram

Adia Carter has experienced a lifelong passion for drawing and is studying studio art at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She feels that open discussion and the introduction of true and scientific information about race can be the gateway to a more accepting society—especially when dialogue about it is encouraged in the young.

What about you? What makes you want to get the Hues of You activity book for a child (aged 7-10) in your life?
