Latoya Nicole, bestselling author and owner of Entrepreneurs Color Too, is back with the release of her newest edition Alma Mater and it’s just in time for graduation! The coloring book is full of highlights that showcase the Black College Experience including its education, diversity and culture. The illustrations are inspired by beautiful Black women and range from Greek life and the Royal Court to STEM and science labs. It even includes activities that test your HBCU knowledge.
“I couldn’t be more excited to release this book,” says Latoya. “I’ve been so humbled by the response thus far and the overwhelming interest.”
When asked what inspired her to create Alma Mater, Latoya replied, “My godmother, who recently passed away, was an advocate for education and we share the philosophy that HBCUs are an important part of history. As an ode to her I wanted to create something that not only promoted education but also captured the spirit of Black Colleges in an artistic manner. It’s also a way to celebrate the people I see in my community, help women practice self care and pay homage to my own Alma Mater, Winston Salem State University.”
The book is great therapy for women and it’s a great way to help students de-stress! Sometimes we just need to unwind, unplug, and relax and coloring can help with that. You can color by yourself or even have fun celebrating a girls’ night out by having a coloring party!
