To be honest, I wavered on whether or not to post this. Today, I published my first book. I’m proud of it, and I hope it can bring you some joy and hope in what is otherwise a very dark time. But candidly, I am tired and I am angry. My daughters — and all of our kids — deserve a better America free from anti-black racism and police violence. Ultimately I decided to share this message because I’ve heard from so many parents over the last week who are struggling to talk to their children about what’s going on. We know that books can challenge assumptions about the way our children see the world, and change the way they see themselves. In “Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea,” two little black girls work together to create positive change in their community. Kamala and Maya show us the power of persistence, and they teach us that, “No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.” I hope you’ll consider making “Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea” a part of your bookshelf, as we raise the next generation of changemakers. I am so thankful to everyone who has already supported my story about two girl leaders and the power of community. I’m especially grateful to those who have ordered through indie bookstores that urgently need our help to stay in business right now. Finally, I hope you take this time to support black-led social justice orgs and black-owned businesses. We’ve put together a list of black-owned bookstores linked in my stories. Thank you for being a part of our Phenomenal community.
