The things that our children see and hear can positively or negatively shape the expectation they have of themselves. Several studies have shown the way we are portrayed in the media as minorities can greatly affect how we see ourselves, as well as how others see us. This is one of the many reasons why representation matters!
We, as Black Parents, should always be striving to make sure our children are being influenced by positive black figures on a daily basis. Thankfully there are many amazing content creators out there that have taken matters into their own hands by creating shows demonstrating Black Magic to our children.
