Noting the many differences of our fellow beings and how it brings us together as one, a Kentucky State University student told HBCU Buzz that he wrote a book to bring awareness to the skin disease vitiligo, in addition to promoting diversity and unity to the children, but most importantly all ages.

“I felt we all can take from a message involving diversity, unity and equality,” said Vincent Edwards, who is also a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. “The story behind it is simply to help all races understand we are humans and we represent humanity. That we can get more accomplished together than individually.”

“Kentucky State as well as being a member of Omega Psi Phi taught me many things but two I live by everyday is to never settle for mediocracy and to see it through any hardships in life.”

Edwards added that he hopes readers recognize that we are all equal despite race, class and gender, and “that we all should be celebrated no matter the shape size or skin complexion.”
