When Colin was five years old, he was given a simple school assignment: draw a picture of yourself and your family. What young Colin does next with his brown crayon changes his whole world and worldview, providing a valuable lesson on embracing and celebrating his Black identity through the power of self-love and knowing your inherent worth.

Based on young Colin’s real experiences as a transracial adoptee, this joyful ode to Black and brown lives tells a story of self-discovery, staying true to one’s self, and advocating for change…even when you’re very little.
