HOPE FOR RACIAL DIVIDE IN AMERICA

Do you believe America’s youth can change the racial divide in the United States? I do! I believe Obama won because of all the young people that voted for him. In my newest book, I talk about how young people can change the landscape of racism in America. Here’s the link to my book on Amazon:

Even Hollywood is changing for the better by making for more shows with African Americans. There is hope around the corner.

About CreatProgramive Child Awards 

Each year, Creative Child holds a 2-day event held in Henderson, Nevada where over a hundred guest reviewers (moms and education professionals) are invited to attend a review event at the local convention center. All products are divided into categories and displayed at various review stations. Guest reviewers are asked to sit and review each product at one station, then move to another station, and so forth and so on. A review form is provided to each guest to aid him or her in evaluating each product. The review forms are to include written comments and a score value based on criteria that corresponds to the product’s category.

Finally, all review forms are collected, scores tabulated, and comments reviewed. Based on the scores and comments, certain products are determined to be finalists and receive a prestigious Preferred Choice award. The Seal of Excellence is another prestigious award given to those products that are not finalists but do exceed expectations based on the criteria for nurturing creativity and education in children.

Look for My Sister Is My Best Friend: A Trilingual Story, English, French and Spanish to be featured in Creative Child‘s special holiday issue this November!
