Rayne and the Yellow Dress. was created to provide a pathway for parents and educators to

discuss topics of colorism, hair texture, and body image with African American children; thoughtfully assisting young women with gaining total acceptance of self and celebrating diversity.

Ten-year-old Rayne can’t wait to see her new pink Easter dress. She can’t wait to finally wear something other than yellow, the color she wears every Easter.
In this confidence building tale, Rayne discovers that her sun-kissed skin shines bright in any color.
