Dinner is usually a time of catching up with the kids. Sometimes there maybe no speaking because parents are trying to get the next day affairs in order in our mind and kids just have nothing to say.
But recently my dinner conversation has been very interesting. My son, Zack, who attends Sankofa International Academy likes to quiz me on my knowledge on Black information. Our conversation usually starts with “Did you know…?”
He recently brought to my attention that Lady Liberty’s original design was to be of a black woman(with true African features) with broken shackles on her hands and feet. The french designer who studied US history felt the true representation of Freedom was the liberation of African slaves in America. Wow!
What are your dinner conversations about?
