Growing up my mom always made sure we knew about our black history and heritage because there isn't enough taught in schools. She made us watch movies, documentaries, read books, write essays and more. Our office in our home was dedicated to black history with vintage items originally invented by African Americans, kente cloth, hand-weaved baskets, cotton still on the branch, Rosa Parks' mug shot, and speeches & quotes by famous civil rights leaders. Of course as a kid I didn't appreciate it then as much as I do now. Especially with all of the BS going on not only in America but around the world. In 2011 my mom published her children's book about my sister Sterling and I going around the house learning what items were made by black inventors. It's been a long time coming, I remember her writing and illustrating this book talking about publishing it since I was a kid. I'm so proud of her and it feels amazing to be able to read it to my daughter. It's available on Amazon and it's one of those timeless children's books that any kid can enjoy for years. There are so many amazing things that we use daily that were invented by brilliant black inventors. I've shared a few of my favorite pages, enjoy!
