Black history Month may be over for some, but stuff like this never goes out of style. This three year old doll Pe'Tehn Raighn-Kem just stole all of my heart. Babygirl comes from two parents who are educators and who obviously value the importance of Pe'Tehn's education as well. LaShaun and Andrea Jackson couldn't hide the smiles on their faces as they spoke of their little lady.
Pe'Tehn's mom - a school teacher, says that she's been reading since about 18 months old. She's very well spoken and doesn't seem shy at all. Pe'Tehn rose to youtube fame when a video of her reciting the poem- Hey Black Child by Countee Cullen went viral. The little angel recently visited her local news station to perform it again.
Her delivery is not only adorable but it's confident, assertive, charismatic and all of the things I hoped my peaces were back in my spoken word days. As I used to say, she sat right in her words. I think this is beautiful and I commend her parents on not only assisting in her traditional education, but inspiring her love of HER culture! Hey Black Child!
