“Lorsqu’elle a pris conscience de l’absence de personnes de couleur dans la littérature pour enfants de sa jeunesse, la graphiste Danielle Murrell Cox a créé le livre à colorier Black Queens. Après la publication d’une photo du premier tirage de l’œuvre sur Twitter, l’artiste a été contactée par plusieurs médias internationaux afin d’exposer la particularité de son livre, par lequel elle mettait de l’avant le problème de la représentativité. Au départ, Black Queens n’était pas créé dans un but militant, mais l’auteure s’estime chanceuse de pouvoir véhiculer un message qui lui tient à cœur grâce à ses dessins.”

“Danielle Murrell is a 27-year-old graphic designer from Montreal. Growing up she loved to draw and paint, despite the fact she never felt like she belonged in the art world. As a person of colour, she rarely saw herself in colouring books – so decided to change that by publishing her own.

She tells IBTimes UK: “I’m half Bajan and half British, since my mom was born in London and my father in Barbados.”
