Kennedy’s class put on a skit for Black History Month. Kennedy was Madame CJ Walker and took her part rather serious. Madame CJ Walker was a self made millionaire, know for developing her own line of beauty product especially for black women. Kennedy researched and wrote a report on her lady. She was inspired by her. It made me smile when I saw a quote that she had written taped to her mirror in her bedroom.
“I got my start by giving myself a start.”
I volunteered to help with the back drop, and as it turns out, I was the only person that volunteered. Yikes!! Realizing that I would need some help to pull it off, I recruited 2 other moms at a birthday party. I think it turned out perfect. It was just simple, so it didn’t over power the kids. I also became the bun lady the day of the play. I guess I’ve gained quite the reputation with my mad hair skills!! 🙂
