Earlier this month, Kindergarten students had a special guest read them a story – Paris McLean, MKA’s Assistant Head of School for Diversity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism! The story he shared, “Mixed Me” by Taye Diggs, explains how the main character, Mike, lives in the world as a biracial student.
Paris shared, “We all come from different backgrounds, have different identities, and walk our history. For me, the book is essential for our young people to recognize that different isn't dangerous. As a biracial person, I could also share my personal background and identity with the students. The class was terrific, remaining engaged, making thoughtful predictions, and highlighting personal connections.”
