Danny Brown Pens Dr. Seuss Inspired Children's Book to Help Boost Black Girls Self-Esteem

It really is all about self-esteem in black girls” that accurately describes the reason behind Danny Brown choosing to put together his Dr. Seuss inspired children book. The things that he talks about are extremely important in an age where self-worth and being yourself are often blurred by mass communication telling young women who they should be, what they should strive to be and most commonly how they should look. We applaud Danny Brown for aiming at the younger crowd in hopes of building that foundation early on as it much easier to maintain from that point than it is to completely reconstruct their mind once they have already become overcome with self-doubt. Considering the views of hip hop are typically interpreted as degrading to women, this could be extremely important to the progression of our culture in music and as a whole. Songs like “Happy” and “i” allowed kids to know it is okay to not hold onto the negatives, to be happy despite circumstances and to genuinely love yourself – Danny Brown is continuing that trend into the new year and it is a great thing to see.

No exact date on when the book will be released but keep your eyes locked right here and we will keep you updated.
