Many African American students grades k-12 have limited curriculum regarding positive ancestry. “In mainstream K-12 curriculum across the United States,… the history of an entire group of people begins with learning about extreme violent conditions, unimaginable oppression and the stripping of millions of people from their homeland. Is it possible that teaching our students from this narrow point of view may have drastically harmed the psyche of multiple generations of African American children and families?... have we also prevented generations of non-African American students and families from developing a healthy concept of blackness.”

our new Ms. Universe!

“I grew up in a world where a woman who looks like me – with my kind of skin and my kind of hair – was never considered to be beautiful... I think it is time that stops today. I want children to look at me and see my face, and I want them to see their faces reflected in mine.”
