Senior Vice President, Charisse Carney-Nunes
(Brand Nu Words 2006, ISBN: 978-0-9748142-1-6)

"NAPPY is a crucial book for our precious children. Don't miss it!" said Dr. Cornel West, Jamestown Advisory Board Member and Princeton University Professor.  "A celebration of self-worth, cultural awareness and strength is woven neatly throughout the pages of this beautifully illustrated tribute to women of African ancestry and their 'super-nappturally Nappy' hair. The story, though joyful and light-hearted, contains a powerful message about history, heritage and high self-esteem." said Gloria Harper Dickinson, Ph.D., Chairperson, Department of African American Studies The College of New Jersey; 2001-2004 National President, The Association for the Study of African American Life & History.

NAPPY is not only a children's "hair story." It is a history lesson and educational tool for parents, teachers and older children. The book's back matter contains biographies about each of the Black women honored in the story, alongside beautiful original sketches of the women by illustrator Ann Marie Williams, an award-winning artist residing in Reston, Virginia.

Carney-Nunes has dedicated her work to producing unique and artistic words and images that have a real impact on the lives of families and children.  Nappy continues to help her to fulfill this vision.
