FREE KINDLE E-BOOK ALERT: I Like Brown by E. Joyce Moore
I Like Brown by E. Joyce Moore
I LIKE BROWN
A National Initiative on Diversity
When my niece was four years old, my sister chose to enroll her in a private school because of its foreign language immersion. She was the only child of color in the Pre-K class and through the first grade only two others joined the classroom. She was always friendly yet often was told by whatever given little girl on the playground that they weren’t going to play with her because her hair was different or her skin was brown. I decided, after yet one more incident that I would write a book for children about the color brown. I Like Brown was born.
As a former corporate facilitator of diversity training, I believe that in order to affect change in the paradigm of racism, one must approach the subject boldly and on all age, gender and class levels.
The biggest success of all? My niece, who I watched as she felt diminished and hurt by the treatment she experienced from her peers. Some of the treatment she experienced I actually witnessed. When I wrote this book, she totally got it and understood that first, the color of skin is a unique factor that does not make her better or worse than anyone else, and second, does not define her. What made her happiest was that I created a book that spoke on her behalf.
