"What I did with my older son Massai (pictured) is take him to the Martin Luther King museum. It was absolutely amazing. They hear speeches, they teach the kids about his mission, his walk of peace and his involvement with the Civil Rights Movement. I explained to Massai that he has to be 10 times better, smarter, more focused, to always take the high road, and to always be the leader, not a follower. My mom is an artist, so I've got tons of Black art. We watch a lot of movies. I think for me it's a combination of sharing with Massai my favorite things about Black history — whether it's musical, film or historical, and try to bring it back around and relate it to how it's affecting his life right now. We read a lot. We're reading Frederick Douglass's autobiography together. We started reading Native Son too."
