Soulful Saturday

Last weekend in the Queen City was super busy! And we loved every minute of it! I tell ya, there is never a dull moment in the QC!

As a 70’s baby, I grew up in mainstream -everything! Every depiction of Santa that we saw — from television to movies to storybooks — shows that rosy-faced, jolly grandpa who is unapologetically white.  He looked nothing like me. Am I not generous?

Am I not generous? Are others like me, not givers? At a certain age, I think it does matter subliminally and he’s not just a jolly, ole fat guy in a red suit.

Is it possible that a long, white beard, the big-bellied man in red with dark skin would not appeal to children in predominantly black and Hispanic parts of the city?

Well, a few of my children and I got to see for ourselves this weekend. We attend two events and both had a positive turn out!

Soulful Santasoulf

The first was Pride Entrepreneur Education Program, (PEEP) it’s a nonprofit of Pride Magazine. They had the happiest SoulfFul Santa on the Westside there. The crafts table was there to reinforce the holiday spirt by giving children the opportunity to create gifts for their loved ones.

The other event was at the Free Store Charlotte. It was outdoors and loaded with fun!  From face painting, coat drives, amazing hot fancy and filling food complete with cocoa, jump house, fire pit, free gift table, and so much more.Image may contain: one or more people, fire, food and outdoor

Did You Know: The Mall of America – the country’s biggest indoor shopping complex – decided to hire a black Santa for the first time this year!

I wanted to know how some of my mom friends thought about ethnic Santa’s. So I spoke with three of them from my mom group, Queen City Stay At Home Moms and each had very interesting responses.

The first mom said: “We balk at the notion that our children should believe that a white man brings them toys, when we ( black parents) are the ones working hard to make their children feel safe, loved and happy/ “

The second  mom asked, “Why can’t there be two at each at a time? Like half brothers? When I was small enough to believe in Santa, he was dressed so completely, including the beard, that I could see only his eyes behind thick glasses. I could not see, nor did I care, what skin color he was.  I would definitely take my children to go see an Asian Santa,” 

The last mom commented:” Santa’s race matters. White folk have enough superheroes. I’m white, but have no tolerance for the abysmal prejudice and past treatment of people of color in this country.”

Although we do not celebrate Christmas, I wanted my children to see that the Santa doesn’t have to look only one way. Santa can be whatever they want him to be. Looking at my littlest Noah’s face, he may never want to go see Santa again, but he has photographic evidence that Santa can reflect the skin tones of many cultures. And that’s, well, pretty magical.

To see more culturally diverse Santas all you have to do is show up when he’s in town. Charlotte organizations like PEEPs, and The Free Store Charlotte will continue to invite him in our hearts, centers, businesses and home! black-sooul

End Notes-

Baron Davis adds a bit of color to Christmas with The Black Santa Company

The former NBA star aims to diversify the holiday with his game-changing venture.

You can find children’s books that feature a black Santa Claus, and he appears in some ornaments and other products. The website blacksanta.com, founded by the former N.B.A. player Baron Davis, sells products like T-shirts, hats and ornaments featuring images of black Santa. In a classic episode of “The Cosby Show,” Dr. Huxtable explains to one of the children that as Santa drops down each chimney, his race morphs to match that of the family he’s visiting – Asian, African-American, Caucasian and so on. -By The NYTimes

Family Early Voting Party And Parade To The Polls

Celebrate early voting with a superhero themed family voting party and parade!

Your child can vote in their Halloween costume! Cool right?

 

Election Day is less than 2 weeks away. Millions of American adults will enter voting booths and cast their votes for the next president of the United States. Most adults may have to wait until November 8 to choose, but Charlotte area children don’t. They can make their voices heard this Saturday at the Family Early Voting Party and Parade To The Poles!

The Queen City-honored mock election is for kids too young to go to the official booths. By casting their votes kids can have their say about who should be our next president.

Their votes may not be official, but the results are often very telling. In other polls  the results of the kids’ election have mirrored the national outcome all but two times: In 1948, more kids voted for Thomas E. Dewey than for Harry S. Truman, and in 1960, they selected Richard M. Nixon over John F. Kennedy.

You can use our facebook page to see what is going on in the city during the 2016 election before casting your vote.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s why you should come out THIS Saturday:

  • Voting Ballots for Kids
  • SuperHero Capes
  • Storytime
  • Snacks
  • Friends
  • To encourage citizenship

It will be at the Beatties Ford Regional Library

2412 Beatties Ford Rd. Charlotte, NC

November 05, 2016

10am – 12:30pm

All are welcome . Even if the parent has voted, not eligible to vote or still on the fence regarding voting. Our future voters, your kids are welcome!

Disney On Ice,”Follow Your Heart” LIVE review (Zianna O., loved the show)

The last time 9 yr old Zianna was downtown, she was speaking to a room full of people.  She  didn’t intend to make them all cry, but sometimes the truth hurts, but must be spoken. So she did it. Her words transcended through their hearts . Her message was shared internationally. Yes, this little girl had adults checking themselves for racial injustice.

zo

First thing came to my mind is, “Who are her parents? ” I wanted to hug them. (Really tight.)  Everyone doesn’t take parenting seriously. It was clear that her parents did. I knew that as a mom,  when your child hurts, you hurt. The last thing you want is to have an emotionally scarred child for life.  As adults, we know that every high and low molds us into who we are, for better or for worse. This is most true of when we are young and our brain is rapidly developing. The power of everything from an unheard cry to an unmarked facial expression can have a heavy impact on a child’s evolving psyche.zoz-bmp

Charlotte has a long way to go, but Zianna’s childhood must be protected and thank goodness, over half of Charlotte agrees with that! Including the numerous news stations that have interviewed her and  especially the amazing staff of Time Warner Cable Arena.

So guess what, for 90 minutes, Zianna her brother, mom, and stepdad attended the Disney On Ice, “Follow Your Heart” Live show. Little Zianna was laughing, dancing, moderating the story lines and just being a child. It was indeed what she and her family needed.  Big thanks to Feld Entertainment, Time Warner Cable and her parents for making this happen.

 

To my girl,

I will let you be children. For as long as I can, I will let you be children. I will protect your childhood fiercely. I won’t pressure you to do things you are not ready for. I will let you play, for hours I will let you play. I will let you discover yourselves. I will let you really know yourselves before you are pushed out into the big wide world on your own. I will let you imagine, and dream, and laugh, whenever you want to. I won’t ever wish this magical time away. All too soon you will be all grown up. You will worry about grown up things. But not now. For now you are a child, your job is to play, and that is important to me.

I will protect your childhood.

disnet

The show will be here until the 2nd of October. Regardless of what you feel about the police and Black Lives Movement, remember to protect your child.  Go see Disney On Ice Live “Follow Your Heart” before they leave town. It is absolutely the best thing you can do for your child (ren)

Children receiving treatment from Levine’s participated in two action-packed days filled with lots of Ringling entertainment, creativity, laughter and lots of fun! You should have seen the smiles on their faces! it’s was truly priceless. Even the guardians in attendance were  glowing with joy! 

 Watch the video HERE! It’s from the Pachyderm Painting Party! 

After the painting party,everyone was treated a to wonderful lunch from Chick Fil A. Which happens to be a sponsor of the event. Great team up if you ask me!

Here’s my four tips for attending a Ringling Brothers Circus:

1. Have a zoo party at home or go by the local party store for circus related accessories.
2. Eat before you arrive. Water is $2.00! I usually take fruits.
3. Get there at least an hour early to smell, touch and take pictures with the animals, and entertainers. The sweet memories will last longer!
4. Park On East Trade. There is a $5- FIVE dollar lot on the other side of the CAT’s bus area.

******Just so you know, I am a Feld Ambassador. For sharing my honest opinion, I am given tickets to the show. But the opinions are mine!  Well ours, as the kids help out with family shows like these. Come on and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Tumbler, Pinterest, Google, and Youtube. 

Have a magical weekend!
