About the Book

God Colored Me Black is poetry. I desire parents, teachers, aunts, and uncles to memorize it with young children to promote high self-esteem. Growing up in the south, family and friends would tease me about the color of my skin. For some reason, God never allowed me to develop a low self-image. Being darker has been one of my greatest strengths. I chuckle, just thinking about the beauty of my skin. This book will enhance short-sighted parents, siblings as well as individuals of other races. Our complexions are the decision of our creator. We must be grateful for his divine plan. Being Black is so fantastic, and knowing what I know about its dominance helps me understand that God makes no mistakes. I appreciate the opportunity to share this unique content with children who need to know how beautiful they are inside and out.

About the Author

Evaughn High has always had a creative mind. Singing was one of her passions, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, the insurrection influenced this creative work’s writing. Evaughn is a multi-talented individual for which some would call her “Gifted.” Evaughn has been a performing artist for over the past five decades. Hard times and the oppression of Blacks inspired Evaughn to write this work to ensure young children’s perspectives become the change agent in the years to come. Evaughn graduated in December of 2019 with an Associate’s Degree in Television and Video Production from Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC). Inspiration can evolve in creative spaces. Evaughn’s environment for the last four years has caused her to write this book. Prayerfully, it will become an animation for children to watch as well. It is my hope that this book brings joy and self worth to children all around the world.
