About the Author

Author Chandra Washington is a dancer, musician, actress, performance poet, writer, and has expertise in "Healing Cuisine" food preparation and herbal nutrition. As a child in the recently desegregated South, she faced mistreatment as one of a handful of Black students attending primary school with a predominantly Caucasian population. Low self-esteem plagued her throughout childhood, and into her adult life.

"In many ways, I was like Abena, the main character of this book. However there are ways our experiences are very different. Like Abena, I was treated negatively because I was considered 'different.' Unlike Abena, I did not have adults in my life who were capable of helping me to love and accept myself. Ill treatment stemming from racial bigotry affected me in ways that caused me to doubt my self-worth. And without the support of family or other adult mentors, feelings of low self-esteem followed me into my adult life. I wish I had this book growing up." ~ Chandra Washington
