Sulma Arzu-Brown Author


Sulma Arzu-Brown is the author of Bad Hair Does Not Exist/Malo Pelo No Existe!, a bilingual children’s book that encourages the cultural solidarity of young Black, Afro-Latino and multi-racial girls to see themselves, and their hair, as beautiful. The book’s mission is to empower young women by providing them with positive terms to describe their hair, while at the same time teaching them the importance of respecting and appreciating the differences in other children. Her work depicts women of various ages, professions and skin tone to expose children to the world’s diversity. Sulma Arzu-Brown is also an entrepreneur, executive director of the Garifuna Coalition, and VP of Operations for the New York City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. She was the keynote speaker at the 2017 opening ceremony of Stony Brook University’s Black History Month.
