I feel that it is extremely important that children can identify with their culture and I wanted to promote that in this very book. In this children's book I incorporated stereotypes, stigmas, and history of the African American so that the reader can see the beauty from all of it. We have to learn to embrace the stereotypes and stigmas that divide us as people so it can unite us together. I also wanted the young reader to understand that Africa is a positive not a negative. History doesn't begin at slavery nor does it end there. With incorporating these things in the form a children's book I feel that it will reach the reader on a different conscious level.
