Sandra and Myles Pinkney are a husband and wife team. Myles is the photo-illustrator for Shades of Black and A Rainbow All Around Me (which were both written by Sandra).
  • Shades of Black:
    « "[The] metaphoric structure succeeds both poetically and educationally, providing a subtle lesson in racial awareness and tolerance that will be welcomed by both parents and teachers."
    - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

    "Wonderful, clear, full-color photographs of youngsters illustrate a poetic, vivid text that describes a range of skin and eye colors and hair textures...An affirmative message for children of all races."
    - School Library Journal

    "This may be just the kind of book that black children don't see enough of, but can certainly be appreciated by children of any color."
    - Booklist
