Some of the many books created for children of color (:

Not only do they excel in representation, they teach important life lessons, and they shed positive light on the media imagery of POC.

I remember reading almost ALL of these!! My favorite was ‘Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain’!! 

I had a mega book with all these stories in it. Love them.

Copper Dipped Cottonwood Leaf Necklace

A less traditional form of a heart pendant, this cottonwood leaf is dipped in lovely, rich, red-colored copper. The leaf is shaped like a heart, and is entirely organic. The thin layer of copper keeps this leaf forever intact while still revealing veins and lines to give a natural appearance. Hung on a 30” chain. Sold on Etsy.

Whoa. Weird! I read those all in my head!

Also, Here’s another interesting one. A professor once wrote “A woman without her man is nothing” on a board
The professor told his class to correctly punctuate the sentence. The males in the classroom wrote, “A woman, without her man, is nothing.” The women in the class wrote, “A woman: without her, man is nothing.” With just a simple change in punctuation, the entire meaning of the sentence was changed in an instant.
