Amy Bowllan has an interesting post on GTM and Michelle Obama over at the School Library Journal site. Bowllan asks her readers whether the color of Michelle Obama’s skin is something that should be talked about and taught in schools. Bowllan writes, “now that we have a first lady, who just so happens to be black, that aged-old topic of color - that has plagued the black communities for years - is at the surface again. This time though, it appears to be in a more positive light...a good thing indeed.” Bowllan draws on comments Barbara and Peggy made during their recent NPR interview and ultimately encourages teachers to talk about the subject with their students.
