When I first started homeschooling back in 2007, I didn’t know of many other homeschool families that looked like ours. However, over the years I have watched the African-American homeschool population grow! More recently, I have discovered some African-American homeschool bloggers as well!
Why the name “Brown Like Me” Homeschool Bloggers? When my daughter was small, I distinctly remember her opening up a picture book and making the following comment: “Mommy, she is brown like me!” In that moment I realized how important it was for her to see people who looked like her in the books she read (which is why I started “Brown Like Me” Books).
I am finding the same to be true of myself. It has been beneficial for me as a homeschool mom to see other African-American homeschool moms in real life and online!
