About the contributor(s)

Bunmi Emenanjo is an attorney and entrepreneur. Born in the United States and raised in Nigeria, her childhood and culture inspire her writing. In 2019, she founded Atlas Book Club, a company focused on curating diverse children's books in an intentional manner. When she is not practicing law or working on Atlas Book Club, Bunmi is reading, traveling, and writing stories that fill the heart and move the spirit. Bunmi lives in Maryland with her husband, her three children, and a devoted Black Russian terrier named Shadow.

Diana Ejaita works as an illustrator and textile designer in Berlin. What sets her illustrations apart is a combination of dramatically contrasting areas of black and white with soft patterns and textures that create images that portray the strength of femininity. Born in Cremona, Italy with Nigerian origins, her aesthetic pays homage to her lineage.
