"With my 2-year-old son Joshua, it seems like we’re living Black history. For example, he was just learning how to speak during this last presidential election. So one of his first words was 'Obama!' Now every time he sees a Black man in a suit, he asks, 'Obama?' Since he's only 2, I'm breaking him in slowly, by singing old Negro spirituals as lullabies. Once he is of age, a few of the things I will do with him to ensure he is well-rounded will be to take him to Africa as my parents did for me, watch Roots with him, and visit two of my favorite places in Detroit: the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and Hitsville U.S.A., home of the Motown Museum."
