A few nights ago my family experienced the hardest, most sobering time we’ve had since starting our #BlackHistoryMonth meal and historical conversations. It was kids choice night. The kids chose the dishes and we discussed some of the stories of Black children in the Civil Rights era. Our were thankful for what we learned that night, thankful for the kids who made it possible for them to enter their schools without much fear.
That evening was hard but a necessary part of teaching our kids the whole story. We thanked God for those kids and how their stories and lives changed history—changed all of our children’s futures.
