Two ten-year-old children have written books that inspire young Black boys and girls to take pride in themselves and learn about historical Black figures from past and present.
Written by Romeo Bremmer, son of Juliet Coley (presenter of the renowned People Get Ready show) and Brianna-Kayla Lynch, the granddaughter of gospel legend Bazil Meade MBE, the books entitled ‘Hey, Black Boy!’ and ‘Hey, Black Girl!’ (respectively) feature profiles of inspirational Black people.
Hey, Black Boy! includes Black male role models, such as grime artist, Stormzy; three times Olympic 100 metres champion, Usain Bolt, and civil rights leader, the late Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Women featured in ‘Hey, Black Girl!’ include Michelle Obama; Britain’s first Black female MP, Diane Abbott, and soul singer, the late Aretha Franklin.
Juliet Coley worked alongside her older son, Bailey, to publish both books. She said: “It’s important to inspire young people to develop pride in themselves and their community, by highlighting well known Black achievers. These books do that, and also encourage readers to see themselves as individuals who can do great things.”
The books have received a great response on social media, and Romeo and Brianna-Kayla are praying that lots of people buy copies to give away as presents at Christmas.
