Self-love is key to self awareness, self-consciousness and self-esteem. When our children are growing up in a society which chooses not to represent them in the toys they play with, or the books they read, this is the beginning of sef-destruction. Let us take control and plant the seeds of self-worth so our children will look at a black doll and say – I want one just like me.
