If You Believe Our Youth Need More Positive Images That Look Like Them, Then Keep Reading...
Right now, we are living in some very interesting times. The social and political climate is extremely volatile, and our children are constantly bombarded with negative imagery. From television to social media, even the print ads are a constant reminder of who they are in this world and where they fit in. Whether we like it or not, the media and literature play such an essential role in shaping the way our children understand race, ethnicity, and social institutions. Often, the lack of positive representation and the "fake news" about those that look like them, on the airwaves, or the daily headlines. Have a profound impact on how they view themselves. This gross misrepresentation has not been lost on the school system. As they, too, have used the classroom as a breeding ground for misinformation. Hence, the reason we have taken it upon ourselves to do our best to educate and change the narrative. To create our own stories and reveal our true history.
