in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. day, i wanted to reshare a post from last year. it was inspired when my son felt my braided hair and asked me
"momma, why do you have braids like a black girl?"
the post features the answers that several children gave to the question:
Why do people have different color skin?
also in this post is a simple way to explain differences in skin color to children using terms and the means that they can understand.
