The Ribbon in the Sky is author/illustrator Vada Azeem's ode to the perseverance of women, but particularly, women of color. The children's book was inspired by Azeem's wife and her uphill battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Azeem's great hope is that The Ribbon in the Sky can offer a lesson in confidence for its young readers and adults alike. Amplifying the universal beauty of courage and strength through his idiosyncratic illustrations and storytelling.



"In his second children’s book, the rapper and visual artist draws inspiration from his wife, Stevie Wonder, Lupe Fiasco, Dr. Seuss, ‘Tales from the Loop’ and the monsters in his head." —Joel Oliphint, Columbus Alive
