Our 23rd week of this program year marked the final week of our Black History Month themed sessions, and it marked the real beginning of spring. To celebrate President’s day, we read an inspirational poem about how we can become anything we want to be and read a children’s biography about the current, first black president, Barack Obama.

Thursday we read a story about how God loves us no matter what we look like, no matter what anybody else thinks about us. We read about how we live in a colorful world, a beautiful world. We also read this poem, written by Lucille Clifton:

“Listen children
keep this in the place
you have for keeping
always
keep it all ways

We have never hated black

Listen
we have been ashamed
hopeless tired mad
but always
all ways
we loved us

We have always loved each other
children all ways

Pass it on”
