DERRICK BARNES feels Black boys are represented unfairly in the United States. He wrote I Am Every Good Thing to change that. The book is narrated by a young Black boy. He is confident and proud. Barnes wants readers to feel that way too. “This book is full of affirmation,” he told TFK. “I believe in treating children like stars and really lifting them up.”
