The Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has written a book titled, Sulwe, about a young girl with dark skin who learns to “reimagine her sense of beauty”. The word “sulwe” means star in Luo.

The 12 Years A Slave star said that Sulwe, the main character, is a “dark-skinned girl who goes on a starry-eyed adventure, and awakens with a reimagined sense of beauty. She encounters lessons that we learn as children and spend our lives unlearning.”.

She added; “This is a story for little ones, but no matter the age I hope it serves as an inspiration for everyone to walk with joy in their own skin.”
