Blackness Is Creative

As the summer of 2020 unfolded and I saw so many adults moving to the wrong side of the fence on appropriate race relations views I was taken back. I thought our country was a lot further down the yellow brick road of race relations. I was deeply wrong. Rather than try to talk to adults whose minds would not be moved despite moving material being presented I started to think about the kids. I thought of parents struggling for a common language when trying to talk about these issues with their children. I thought of the children trying to make sense of issues that just don't make sense. I imagine they were left feeling scared and insecure. If they were children of color I imagine there are no words to describe how they felt. Vulnerable, at-risk, hunted to name a few. I believe our country can heal from the wounds of racism. I believe this younger generation will be the last generation to tolerate systemic racism. At a peaceful demonstration, I attended in July 2020 for Elijah McClain one of the teenage speakers said, "Change is coming and it is beautiful! " Amen. Please join me as we create a safer world for all children.

"Blackness is Creativeness truly belongs in every elementary school. Equity begins with educating our children about the beauty of diversity. This book is a unifying plan for a lifetime."
