If you think we are done raving about Lupita Nyong’o after the massive success of her latest movie Us, created and directed by Jordan Peele, then you are absolutely wrong.

Announced just hours ago on her Instagram page, Lupita revealed the cover of her upcoming children’s book called Sulwe, illustrated by New York-based illustrator, writer and film director Vashti Harrison.


According to her post, the book was inspired by her drive to encourage children to love and accept the skin they are in. An issue that is known to sit close to the actress’s heart as she has previously revealed the amount of work she had to do to unlearn the low-self esteem that developed as a child due to her darker skin.

The book will be released in the last quarter of the year on 1 October but is also available for pre-order.

Let us know if you are as excited as we are for this book by sharing your thoughts with us in the comments.
