Review:

Gaining inspiration from Nikki Giovanni, Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes and Detroit s own Jessica Care Moore, just to name a few, the book Color Me Beautiful imitates the flow of life. With 34 poems total, the collection draws from years of ideas, journal entries and life experience as a young woman of color. As her words and imagery powerfully resonate on the page, the book is divided into five sections symbolically arranged to reflect Tweh s perspective on life: A Day In the Life, In Dreams, Ego Trippin , On Love and The Proud. The intention of Color Me Beautiful is, first and foremost, to celebrate beauty and encourage young women of all colors.
