My son’s first grade class featured Dr. Daniel H. Williams on the morning announcements this week. The school is doing “Who’s in the Box” Black History Lessons this month. Joseph was so excited to recite his part from memory only to get switched to a more difficult passage the day before taping. He was okay with the last minute change and did fine (Acting may be his calling). I was thrilled at his excitement over learning that Dr. Williams was the first doctor known to do open heart surgery and that he was black. He rushed home to have me Google the Doctor so I could read all about it with him.
I love it when kids are excited about learning, also love the blessing that my husband and I have to be able to shoot over to the school at a moment’s notice to photograph his acting debut.
