Interview with Bellen Woodard, author of "More than Peach" on WGTD
Join WGTD as they speak with Bellen Woodard,
11 y/o CEO of More than Peach LLC, Pioneer of More than Peach crayons and now children’s book author!
We'll speak with Bellen Woodard, author of a children's book called "More than Peach." When Woodard, who happens to be African-American, was asked by an elementary school classmate to pass her the 'skin-colored crayon," Woodard realized that the crayon in question, Peach, looked nothing like her own skin color. That inspired her to undertake a project to help people to better appreciate the beautiful diversity of skin tones that exist in the world.
