“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” - Marcus Garvey
“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” - Maya Angelou
“Diversity means understanding.” - Stuart Scott
As precarious as racial sensitivity is today, it seems almost taboo to talk about the topic of race and the role it plays in our society, let alone magnifying the extent to which it exists.
We’re afraid that even broaching the topic of race, and highlighting dissimilarity in culture and color, will somehow distort the lens our children see differences through, banning their perspective to a ditch of racism that they will never be able to dig their way out of.
