I NEED A PLACE TO WRITE DOWN MY THOUGHTS, FEELINGS AND EXPERIENCES. THE WORLD IS A DIFFICULT PLACE TO UNDERSTAND AND THROUGH SHARING MY HUMANITY, I HOPE TO GROW AND CONNECT.
My first children's book is titled, "The Skin on My Chin" and is a fun rhyming picture book that children, ages 2 to 12 and you, will enjoy. This book was written as a tool for parents and teachers to engage in conversations about skin color, melanin, ancestry, diversity, race, stereotypes and prejudice. The author aims to foster an awareness of the importance of teaching children the benefits of diversity and of being a global citizen.
The Story of METCO, is my second children's book written to tell the history of the Massachusetts METCO program, the 2nd longest running voluntary school integration program in the country. .
"I am You are," is my third book and was created to celebrate the wonder, beauty and grace of boys, who may identify as Black and mixed race. My hope is that with more positive images and attributes we express to ourselves and to each other, we will diminish the impact of demeaning stereotypes on our beautiful boys.
This book is the amazing story of how and why human beings have different color skin tones. From dark brown to light, human beings and our evolution have an amazing story to tell and it's all here for you to learn and share.
