"For me, teaching my son Tron about his history is just like I teach him about everything else. Everything starts with conversations so that it doesn't seem so much like teaching; it’s just having a conversation about how things were and how they are now. I think if kids see people they can know that are doing great things and see people in their family that are successful, that's what leaves the biggest impression on them. I make sure Tron is introduced to successful people of all backgrounds and jobs so that he sees that people who look like him can and have been able to accomplish anything they set their minds to. I think seeing Barack Obama in office while he is a teenager has left a big impression on him and many other children and taught them to be proud of their heritage."
