About the Event
"Mommy I Want to Be White..." is what my 4 year old told me this past Sunday, and it felt like a smack in the face. Since then, she's gone back to her innocent life (thinking nothing about the comment), but for the past 3 days I’ve been left thinking about how to navigate this conversation (and others like it) that are sure to come in the future. As a Nigerian-American and proud black woman who has come far in the journey of self-love, I felt like I'd failed. So I'm holding space for us to have a conversation about how to have convos with our children that celebrate them, their culture, and their awesomeness moving forward. I'll be hosting a free online event this Saturday (10/10) at 9PM through my site to simply chat. We need each others help ya'll. our stories, our experiences, and solutions to promote healing and JOY – not only for our children, but for ourselves. Until then, please share this with another parent who may want to contribute to the conversation, and I hope to see you all on Saturday!
Live Rich, and Happy Dream Chasing!
