Colour Me Melanin: A Tribute To African Women Depicted In Images & Wonderfully Crafted Poems




Created by Katlego Kekana, Colour Me Melanin is a book which pays tribute to 27 women from 27 African tribes through poetry and colouring.


The inspiration for the book was 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.


According to The Colourist, 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.
