In society, young black girls are constantly told that in order for
them to be considered “beautiful” they have to be light skinned. If you
are dark-skinned, then you are marginalized, and are harshly judged and
Tar Baby discusses issues, such as racism, colorism, self-hate, and
other stereotypes that plague the black community.
Tar Baby is a fictional book for young adults.
