When I first moved to New Orleans I was surprised by the Black Santa on my neighbor's lawn.

It occurred to me that while folks had told me that white Santa did not exist, no one had ever told me that Black Santa did not exist.

It was with this in mind that I sat down and penned the song Black Santa. When the song was complete I was inspired to tell the story in pictures as well so I sat down with a pencil and created these images. My wife was kind enough to do the coloring and digitizing for me.

I hope that his book brings as much joy and understanding to you as it has to us.

Wishing you a Very Special Christmas every year!
