Colour Me Melanin by Kolourist is a poetry and colouring book featuring 27 women from 27 African tribes in their traditional attire. There is also a short synopsis for each tribe explaining the region/s the tribe is located in, their history as well as some interesting facts about the tribe.
It was created by Katlego Kekana - born out of a love for meditation through colouring, children, and the arts - in particular - African poetry.
The book features poems by Mfumo and Fumane Ntlhabane, Belita Andre and Katleho Kano Shoro, was edited by Vus'umuzi Phakathi and the designs were created by Kholisile Zwane.
The message it conveys is one of unity – an appreciation that, despite our varying backgrounds and cultures – we are all one.
A message also of pride: Pride in our femininity. Pride in our heritage. Pride in our stories and history which have carved who we are today.
