From the New York Times bestselling duo who brought you GLORY: Magical Visions of Black Beauty, comes CROWNED: Magical Folk and Fairy Tales from the Diaspora. Alḥamdulillāh, our eldest daughter finished memorising the Qur’an aged 8; she was ecstatic that she beat her mother’s record. What happens when two girls will stop at nothing -- including scandalous Internet pictures, vicious message board rumors, or "accidentally" ruined hair -- to be crowned the winner? Bathed in a golden light, she looks out from a photo resembling a fashion magazine spread with a commanding stare, surrounded by massive teddy bears. The collection is in three parts: Classic (Western) fairy tales, African and African American Folktales, and New Classics.

Even though it’s only a tiny dot from here, I can see the tips of its incredible red leaves shimmering in the morning sunlight.Regis and Kahran Bethencourt are the talented husband and wife team behind CreativeSoul Photography, a company on a mission to empower kids of color through stunning photography that showcases their beauty, uniqueness, and creativity. The mirror answered, “There are many lovely maidens, it is true, but one is now even lovelier than you. Christophe saw himself as an Enlightenment ruler, and his kingdom produced great literary works, epic fortresses and opulent palaces. This book can hold its own in a print version as well because the stories are so good, and I would love to see the illustrations. She climbs out of the tower and goes home where her family love her and reaffirm that she is more than her hair.

Sadness was not a feeling Aliyah was used to, for she had the whole of the sea and all its creatures to play with. African and African-American Folktales, amidst tales set in Africa, we find the story of John Henry, pictured when he was a young boy. The first has rewritten folk tales from the Brothers Grimm, Disneyfied (can I use it as a word) with African characters. They feel more sanitized than Disney in many places, and disjointed because they are trying to blend several elements from different cultures together but without fully paying attention to the original cultural contexts or coding in the stories.The first third of this anthology, “Childhood Reimagined,” consists of fairy tales from European traditions that highlight the beauty of Black characters. Many of the retellings have been refocused on a princess/gal/lil lady saving herself, rather than being saved by a prince. This book brilliantly reimagines tapes both familiar and new (to me) with characters that are often more full, more interesting, and more encouraging than many novelizations of the same or similar tales have done.

The fourth novel by bestselling, Costa Award-winning author Jasbinder Bilan follows archaeology-obsessed Xanthe as she uncovers her family’s secrets . Produced in partnership with Biblica, Crowned King includes beautiful images and an eloquent introduction by Catherine Butcher that unpacks the inherent Christian symbolism in the coronation. Crown emerged briefly from their second bankruptcy in the spring of 2000 with former Waldenbooks CEO Charlie Cumello in the CEO seat, financed by private funding.Fairy tales are retold with Black children in the book 'Crowned' In their latest book CROWNED: Magical Folk and Fairy Tales from the Diaspora, Kahran and Regis Bethencourt retell fairy and folk tales with Black children as the main characters. I didn't always appreciate the retellings and the stories have to be short to match the pictures, so I feel they were often shortchanged to fit the format. She took Ebony into the deepest, darkest part of the woods, then she opened the blanket and raised her dagger. When Ebony was two years old, the queen again asked, “Magic mirror that sees all, who is the loveliest of them all? This book is a collection of fairy tales retold and modernized to better represent the black population in today's world.
