….faith ringgold, you in first place!
remember in the 90s when everybody would say, “it’s takes a village to raise a child”. i know they meant actual people interacting with your kid and all, but there are so many people that served as mama’nem to me growing up. faith ringgold was one of them. i had all of her books growing up, “tar beach” being my favorite.
i honor her on this day of her birth and thank her for making my life as a little brown girl the best thing ever!
