As a colorful person - or person of color, I was delighted when Jim Korkis asked me to write the introduction for his new book.

The Walt Disney Company has been needlessly wringing it's hands over this marvelous film for way too long and they need to get over it. I can only hope this wonderful new book by Jim Korkis is a start.
