My Three-Year-Old Daughter on Race and Martin Luther King

This morning as we played Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech for our three-year old, she listened contently.

Here are a few of her comments:

He’s teaching them to be nice!

We all have different colors on the outside, but on the inside we’re the same.”

Nana has white skin and papa has black skin.”

After Lynn told her that Martin Luther King helped change peoples’ minds, but God is changing their hearts, she exclaimed, “That’s amazing!”

It’s truly never too early to teach your kids about love, courage and empathy.
