Things We Saw Today: Danny Brown Is Writing A Book About Self-Esteem In Black Girls



Rapper Danny Brown told an Australian radio station that he’s writing a Dr. Seuss-style book for his daughter “about self-esteem in black girls.” Brown says the book focuses on “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.” Sell it. Please. Sell it.
