Written by
Stacy Darku

Imani is a young and happy girl with a radiant smile and a heart full of curiosity. With the most beautiful dark skin that glistens like polished ebony, Imani embarks on a journey that will inspire your mind. Imani's friends come in different shades of black. Yet, Imani can't help but wonder: Are they all the same? Do their different shades make a difference? Coming to the rescue, her loving mother teaches her a timeless lesson - that the colors of one's skin do not define their worth.
