Meet Moxie Girl, a Superhero With Powerful Afro Puffs

Angie Nixon encouraged her 7-year-old daughter to create a young Black superhero in hopes of raising her daughter’s self-esteem about her natural hair and her interest in reading. They went on to create The Adventures of Moxie Girl, a prize-winning comic book about a young Black girl whose set of fire-and-ice afro puffs help her save the world.
