Why White Parents Should Teach Their Children About Race
EVERYBODY Should Read Black Children’s Books
See, the majority of the parents of my daughters’ friends, no matter how kind and smart and sweet they are, didn’t buy black books, dolls, or movies for their children. I don’t think they were being racist or striking out against diversity, by any stretch; it just never seemed to really occur to them that maybe, just maybe, their daughters would identify with the pretty, round-faced girl pie in “Home Made Love,” or Sassy, the talented but shy ballerina in “Dancing in the Wings” — or that there would be value in letting their daughters read their sweet, insightful, beautifully human stories.
