In the summer of 2015, Shanice Nicole wrote a “love letter to Black girls” in the form of a poem titled “Dear Black Girls.” Now she is reintroducing the poem as a children’s book that will be released on Feb. 8.
Nicole transformed the poem into a book in collaboration with illustrator Kezna Dalz and Metonymy Press. The Montreal publishing company’s website reminds readers that “to be a Black girl is a true gift.”
Nicole is a Montreal-based educator, facilitator, writer, and as she claims in her online biographies, an “(out)spoken word artist.”
