Carol Baldwin post, "Where are the People of Color in Children's Literature? An Answer from Vanessa Newton As a member of SCBWI, I follow topics of interest through LinkedIn. Recently the question, "Where are the People of Color in Children's Literature?" generated many comments. When I read a personal response from a Charlotte, NC illustrator, Vanessa Brantley-Newton, I asked her permission to post it here.

Author Carol Baldwin asked if she could post some of my comments from a recent SCBWI chat on When you get a chance please run over to her site and read it. Please leave a comment or two if you are so inclined. Have a great day.
