This is Candya, who worked with me recently on a portrait of Dr. Martin Luther, King, Jr., at the Hastings Americorps after-school program. Candya is six and writes perfectly–I was amazed at how many words she can spell! She asked me why white people are mean to black people. Who has an answer to that? She also gave me a portrait of myself that she drew. I keep it on my fridge. So stern, and so loving, at such a young age!
