A young brown girl stands with her arms and feet apart. Snowmanned in Fair & Lovely. She does not know why she has to do this. She wonders why the way she was born isn’t enough. Why she’s not enough. Whitewashed Jasmine is a poetry collection about brown girls navigating a white world. It is about breaking barriers upheld by patriarchy. It is about femininity and womanhood. It is about freedom and finding a voice in a society where women are taught to not speak. It is about wanting to wear a cute crop top without being jailed for it. Whitewashed Jasmine is a gift and a reminder to brown girls everywhere. You are worthy. Bask in your own #BrownGirlGlow. And punch racists right in the face!
