Amani, I have to confess. I must have been sleeping because I never heard about Kiri Davis' award winning documentary "A Girl Like Me". Fascinating stuff.
As I watch it, I can't help but recall the Don Imus controversy. The point I think many people missed in that whole mess was how ignorant many of us still are to African American culture. For all the progress we've made, we still have so far to go.
Still, we shouldn't be discouraged by the distance yet to travel. The conversation, the explanation, the exploration of not only our commonalities but also of our differences must continue. If not, we will all continue to sleep.
