(New Orleans, LA; Atlanta, GA) October 7, 2019- “Do black girls ride horses?” C is for Cowgirl is a book that colorfully answers the captivating question a special little aspiring cowgirl asked her mom, author Wednesday Boateng. She joins forces with co-authors Crystal Orr and Dawn King to breathe life into this engaging children’s story featuring Cowrie, a brown girl equestrian, as the main character. “It is important not only to satisfy the original curiosity of my daughter, but to have many other daughters see themselves represented as well,” says Boateng.
C is for Cowgirl is a powerful, educational, inspiring read for early learners that introduces them to the wonderful world of horse riding. Myriads of youth who were asked to review the book said they love and trust the cornrow wearing Cowrie the cowgirl! She teaches so much along the way as she highlights words that start with the catchy letter “C”. Eager readers enjoy beautiful illustrations with simple rhyming and repetitive text on every page! The book is now available to every girl and boy on Amazon.
This November, parents, children, supporters, family and media in Louisiana and Georgia, will have a hands-on chance to explore Cowrie's authentic journey written by a mommy and two real life cowgirls of color. The entire community is welcome to come!
