Ebony History Day 11, year 3: Eugene Goodman month. For a time in which the capitol had been stormed, with vows to reclaim a вЂњlost.
Whenever Chauncia Boyd Rogers recognized her daughter that is then-5-year-old AvanвЂ™t learning about Ebony History Month inside her prekindergarten course, she took action.
It absolutely was February 2015, and вЂњI looked over the calendar and saw they didnвЂ™t have anything planned,вЂќ she stated, incorporating that the college in Orlando typically acknowledged other social festivities and breaks. вЂњI didnвЂ™t want her to lose out. I needed her to understand that the thirty days of February is focused on celebrating Ebony lives.вЂќ
вЂњSo, I made the decision to show her myself,вЂќ said Boyd Rogers, 37.
She desired to show her daughter concerning the many Ebony ladies who blazed the path before her. Boyd Rogers had been determined to get a concept that could resonate by having a 5-year-old вЂ” which, she admitted, had not been a simple task.
вЂњAva possesses imagination that is crazy as well as the full time, she adored to relax and play liven up. Therefore I decided I would dress her up as each person each time and show her in what the individual has been doing and just why theyвЂ™re highly relevant to her history,вЂќ stated Boyd Rogers, who lives outside Dallas.
The elaborate mother-daughter project became a yearly tradition, and from now on, at age 11, Ava continues to be dressing as a unique Ebony trailblazer each day this thirty days.
