Episode 9: A Little Something Extra with Meeka
This week’s episode of A Little Something Extra is all about differences and taking the time to recognize and acknowledge them because in doing so it will completely change perspectives. The guest who joined us was determined to show the world that differences aren’t so different after all. Meeka Caldwell is a mother, author and advocate who noticed a lack in representation of children with special needs, specifically black children, in kid’s books. Being the trailblazer she is, she decided to create her own, with her son, Anian, as the main character. Nancy, GiGi, Franco, and Meeka discuss many different topics regarding societies’ viewpoints on differences and the changes that need to be made to create a more accepting world. GiGi also gives some of her famous TIPPPSS on accepting people for who they are!
