Queen Leah: An African-American Fairy Tale A Career Educator's Positive Visual Image Reading Enhancement Guide (Little Princess Heritage Version)
By: Joyce Louise Killebrew, B.A. M.A.T.
About the Book
The time has come for this book. We are living in a world where people lack respect for others. Our beautiful, black-skinned young girls need positive visual images. For 401 years, black-skinned people have been debased, denigrated, and disgraced. Now, it is time for all people to be respected. Many black-skinned people have been affected emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually by the horrid ways we have been treated in the land of our birth. The tale of Queen Leah and the lessons from her story are an inspiration for the Queen Leah competition to celebrate young, black-skinned girls for being inspirational, positive, and strong role models for the generations to come.
