I am a certified educator for grades K-8. I have spent several years in elementary classrooms where topics of Black History, racial divides, and segregation were topics being introduced to some students for the very first time. I am well versed in presenting such a sensitive topic with respect and honor to Black culture and community without compromising the facts surrounding such historic events. This course will be taught with non-violent communication principals at the forefront so that we may express ourselves with clarity and empathy. Although this course is based around historical fiction literature and is a novel study, special care will be used when discussing terms and conditions experienced by a marginalized group. In addition, as a Black educator, I believe it is my duty to share my knowledge and experiences as a member of a marginalized group to encourage young learners to critically think about our past, present, and future.

Directly From American Girl: When Melody’s story takes place, the terms “Negro,” “colored,” and “black” were all used to describe Americans of African descent. All of those words are used in No Ordinary Sound. Today, “Negro” and “colored” can be offensive because they are associated with racial inequality. “African American” is a more contemporary term, but it wasn’t commonly used until the late 1980s. Additionally, the term “Big Momma” is a sign of respect for Melody’s grandmother. It is not a reference to her size but to the fact that she’s the oldest mother in the family.
