    I just received my package including 4 packs of flashcards and a coloring book, and to be quite honest, I am thrilled to look through them. I bought them specifically for my son whom I am homeschooling during the pandemic because I noticed a glaring lack of Black History, but I am learning more and more every day because of these resources, and I am so glad these resources exist. I hope reading more about the history of black people will help me better understand the institutional challenges that they face every day, and I hope that a better understanding of the privileges i hold as a white person will help me see injustice and step in to help where I can. Thank you so much, I really appreciate the work that y’all are doing.

For those of us that are older, the cards could be larger with larger print. That way we could really enjoy them with our grandchildren without straining our eyes.😊.
