7. Contact the nations leadership, and let them know your concerns

The following image of Lady Liberty contains a link to whitehouse.gov where you have the opportunity to contact your leadership, and intelligently express your concerns with what's taking place in the country

8. Go to your children's school, and introduce yourself

Parent's, please take the time to go out to your children's school, and introduce yourself to the Principal, Assistant Principal, and the teachers. Ask them if there is anything you could do to help them do their job. We don't realize the impact this has on our children's education. It has been proven that a child whose parent is known by name at the school will receive more attention than the next child.

9. Have dinner as a family at least once this month

10. Register to vote if you're not a registered voter

If you are not currently a registered voter within the United States, please take the time to register. Click the image below to visit the usa.gov website where you will be able to register online, and expedite the process

I hope this list will help enlighten you to the African American culture, and please don't stop there. There are so many beautiful cultures to learn from, and if you have any comments please feel free to comment at the bottom of the page.
