Book List: Skin Tone

Here is a selection of books from our collection exploring skin tone and color and other racial features and countering anti-blackness

These titles are only a sample of what you can find in our full collection. To see more, use the filtered search on the left-hand bar: go to “Content” and click “Skin Tone and Color.”
