Introducing a new book about the evolution of human skin colour! When we meet someone, one of the first things we notice is their skin, and what colour it is. But what can someone's skin colour tell us about them? Despite what some people say, skin colour means very little! Inside, we're all the same - your skin is just what you are in!
Join Njabulo, Aisha, Tim, Chris and Roshni as they discover why humans have different skins, and how people's thinking about skin colour has changed throughout history. Skin We Are In is a celebration of the glorious human rainbow, both in South Africa and beyond.

"This book should be compulsory in all schools in South Africa" - Sara-Jayne King, author of Killing Karoline.
