"My skin, glistening like a panther's coat. Making me so elegant and proud that I have to gloat. I Am Lucky!"
Lucky is a hardback full-color book with 26 pages illustrated by Shirley Jackson Whitaker, MD MPH, the book's author. Although this is her first children's book, she is no stranger to the art world. Dr. Whitaker has a book of etching presently in the rare book collection of the Library of Congress. Because of her desire to create something to celebrate the beauty of Black girls, she created Lucky. Dr. Whitaker is a Nephrologist living in Amherst, Massachusetts with her family.

"Lucky is a book dedicated to celebrating the beauty in African girls and to promoting their positive self-image. Parents and educators of all races, ethnicities, and cultures are encouraged to read Lucky with their girls and engage in a discussion afterwards on the true definition of beauty as it relates to ALL girls, especially those of African descent."
