Dark Girls

I have a lot to learn.  I came across this AMAZING documentary that is being created right now.  Being the mother of two brown babies after growing up in a white privileged world makes me really really really naive about racial issues.  I want to believe that the world is changing for the better....I hope to be a part of that change.  Here is a link to a preview of the Dark Girls documentary.  They are in need of funding to continue filming.  If you feel compelled to donate--you can click the link on the right hand side of my blog.

You can also help create awareness too!  Head on over to DARK GIRLS on facebook and give them a little love!  

And if you are curious where I got my fabulous connection....head on over to MY BROWN BABY!  You will not be disappointed!!  Thanks Denene for all your time and kind hearted support answering all those questions that every white momma is afraid to ask!  You are very much appreciated!

Thank you so much, my love, for the MyBrownBaby shout out and for calling attention to Dark Girls. It truly is my honor and pleasure to write about what I know, always with the hope and prayer that my words are helping ALL moms be better parents, myself included. Thanks for hanging with MyBrownBaby! (And your babies—all of them—are delicious!)

wow. Being black myself with lighter complexion, not only did it open my eyes but it made me realize how much of this is true. Its so sad to see, but at the end of the day its the truth. Its something we need to open our eyes to and change it.
