In Honor Of Black History Month
It's Black History Month in the USA and as an Author of Colour who loves celebrating Black History Month, I thought I would invite you and the children in your life to get creative for the month of culture, history, blackness and reflection. I've been celebrating Black History Month since I was in high school. We used to do amazing assemblies in the month of October (UK Black History Month). They were the type of assembly you weren't late for LOL! As well as that, I've been a YouTuber for 5 years and I've made an effort to get creative year after year by posting videos to celebrate and share Black History and my culture with the world.
As a Black Author, but also an Author of a children's book with Afro Caribbean/ Black children who represent their culture; I thought this month would be the perfect opportunity to do a competition to get the creative juices of children flowing. Also an opportunity for them to research and learn about their history.
Enter To WIN the Zurie and Zaria - Mum And Dad, We Know What Love Is BHM Giveaway. Zurie and Zaria are 11 year old, Afro Caribbean, fraternal twins who know their culture and their heritage. They are beautiful, artistic and creative children who went on a journey to find love, and because of them here's an opportunity for a child to win a signed paperback copy of Mum And Dad, We Know What Love Is. Do you know a child aged between 10-15 who loves art and would like to enter the competition? An original piece of Black History art must be entered before February 28th to be judged and considered for the prize. Share the details and/ or image above of the competition with any children you know so he/she has a chance to win big in the month of February. And don't forget to follow Zurie and Zaria on Instagram @ZurieandZaria
Entries must be emailed to email@example.com and can be posted on Instagram. @ZurieandZaria MUST be tagged in your drawing and captioned #ZurieandZaria - Mum And Dad, We Know What Love Is BHM Giveaway. The deadline is Friday 28th February 2020 at 6pm UK time/ GMT.
"I can't wait to see your drawings, so get creative and Good Luck!!" The winner will be emailed and will be posted on the @KayishaOnline and @ZurieandZaria Instagram page.
Good luck! I look forward to seeing your drawings.
Have a blessed day and a positive week!
