A Little Boy Wants to Write His Own Story

Here is a short video about a boy, Capri Hall (7). It’s one of the videos on Intergenerational Stories of Black Masculinity from the Museum of the African Diaspora. This one is made by Angelica Ekeke. I urge you to watch it if you are raising or some day will get to raise a little boy in world that tells boys like him that they are bad. Or if you were ever believed the stories that you were a bad boy. Or if you knows boys who have mothers for fathers, get suspended at school, have teachers who think they are bad, boy who have to handle their own. You know what I like best? I love it when he says, “I wanna write my own story”. Please watch.
