My oldest foster son is biracial. He came home from hs one day needing to do a report on a person for bhm. He was looking up MLK on his iPad. I told him why not learn about some other famous African Americans rather than handing the teacher her 1000th copy of another MLK paper. Teach her something. I introduced my son to Jimi Hendrix, Joe Louis, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. He has surprised to find out that Hendrix the guitar rock icon served as a paratrooper in the Army airborne. He was also surprised that Louis had a special, close friendship with Max Schmelling, his German heavyweight rival during Hitler's rule. He learned that Basquiat is credited for legitimizing urban street art and was close friends with Andy Warhol. We enjoyed a Joe Louis and Max Schmelling movie together while he wrote his report on Louis. I was proud that he accepted my advice to dig deeper and think outside of the box.
