Reviews:

Beauty in a Box stands as one of the most captivating and well-researched tomes to examine black beauty culture in Canada and transnationally. Read this book! ~ Ingrid Banks, University of California Santa Barbara

In Donald Trump’s post-truth America, where nostalgia is used as a political too to rewrite history, Uncle makes the case for why understanding the production of racial stereotypes matters more than ever before. ~ CBC Books
