Princess Onyx™ Hairy Business

Once there was a little girl named Jaydah who liked dressing up like a princess. She also loved spending time with her grandmother, Tata.

One day while playing dress up with her friends Zoey and Marissa, Jaydah found a long, black wig in her grandmother’s closet. She put the wig on and looked at herself in the mirror. She looked so pretty.

"I hate my hair!" exclaimed Princess Onyx.

"You have such beautiful hair," reassured Ruby, her Lady-in-Waiting, brushing the Princess’ hair into a ponytail.

"You're only saying that because I'm the princess,” Princess Onyx responded. “I like your hair. It's long and straight."

Princess Onyx™

One day, Jaydah came home from school crying. She ran to the sofa and buried her head in a pillow. Her grandmother, Tata, sat down next to her.

“Why are you crying?” Tata asked, caressing Jaydah’s back.

"Today a boy called me ugly because my skin is dark," said Jaydah as tears rolled down her cheeks.

"My beautiful gem," Tata said softly, gently wiping the tears from Jaydah's face. "You are far from ugly. You are beautiful and exquisite like a beautiful and precious gem."

This is the story of two beautiful little girls who learn to appreciate and love the color of their skin.
