The dark-skinned actress who played Nakia character in the Black Pantha Marvel movie said she is passionate about children and her new book is a children book about a dark-skinned starry-eyed young girl who is adventurous and went on an adventure of her own.
Could this book be telling us something about the actress or is she trying to tell us a story about herself through Sulwe? We might have to wait to find out.
As we wait patiently for this epic and debut book from Lupita who is about to dabble into the literary world we hope to see more work from our superhero Nakia.
