For #GivingTuesday , I’m starting the #SulweChallenge to give #Sulwe to classrooms in need on @DonorsChoose ! Link in bio to join! ✨Here's how it works: Visit DonorsChoose.Org/SulweChallenge and pick a classroom to support. All of the teachers on the list are requesting Sulwe and other needs for their students. Any amount makes a difference and today, all donations receive a 50% match! I have kicked it off! I see you, Mrs. Hyche, Mrs. Tate, Mrs. Branch, and Ms. Neal. Your projects are funded!! Sulwe is the kind of book I wish I had as a child, and I'm grateful to all the teachers who want to share this story with their students. Today, it’s so fulfilling to grant this wish for you! Share/Like/Comment if you’re with me!
Happy birthday to my exceptional friend from the future, @janellemonae . I love sharing real life and real fantasy with you.
Who said picture books were just for kids! This is why I wrote #Sulwe ! Thank you for sharing your Sulwe story with me, @queen_akinyi & @_doanna . It is moments like these that make me feel most successful. Let's shade in the love! #MySulweStory What's yours? #SulweSunday #LoveFromKenya #WhoSaidPictureBooksWereJustForKids

The beautiful queen @Ciara asked me if Troublemaker could make an appearance on her new song, #Melanin , and you know I had to show up and show out! All the lyrical credit to my long-time collaborator @RobynHoodMusic for being the mastermind behind Troublemaker's bars. Link in bio to hear the track on my new #BrightnessIsJustWhoYouAre playlist dedicated to unabashedly loving that skin you're in!! SONG AVAILABLE ON ALL PLATFORMS.
SECRET'S OUT: I wrote a song!! It is an ode to #Sulwe and a little melody to keep in your heart any time you need a reminder that the key to unlocking your purpose and value in this life is inside you (yes, you! ). ✨ Link in bio to watch the video! And search "Sulwe's Song" or "Lupita Nyong'o" on Spotify and Amazon Music to hear it. Endless gratitude to my song co-writers @Knaanstagram and #SteveMcewen ! 🔑🔑 Video by @MPeach 💜
Amazon named #Sulwe the Best Children’s Book of 2019 (for readers 3 to 5! ), and just like @princessserenitysays , I am so excited! Seeing so many of you (young and old! ) wrap your arms around this story means the world to me. ✨✨✨ #BrightnessIsJustWhoYouAre 📚: SulweByLupita.com

Finding the people who see the best in you, offer you the best of themselves and help you look, feel and do your best is the secret to a fulfilling life. Vernon François is one of those people for me, and today I celebrate the day that he was born. Happy Birthday, @VernonFrancois !
