Danny Brown Is Writing A Children’s Book Aimed at Increasing ‘Self-Esteem in Black Girls’


In an interview with Australian radio station, artist Danny Brown revealed that he is gearing up to release a children’s book inspired by Dr. Seuss and his 13-year old daughter.

“It’s been taking me forever to finish. It’s really about self-esteem in black girls, I guess.” “You know how black women do so much—process their hair, change their eye color—it’s really about a little girl who does all these things to herself and changes herself and she realizes she’s just better off the way she is.”

“It’s something for my daughter… I want it to be real Dr. Seuss-y… The Grinch, Green Eggs and Ham, and One Fish, Two Fish—what was going on in that guy’s brain to be able to write those things?”

Listen to the full interview below.
