The book lets readers in on a journey learning about the history and culture of the native-born black people in Africa and the Americas, the Root reported.
“We’ve received tons of positive feedback, with orders from Australia to Amsterdam,” Bey told the Atlanta Black Star. “Parents asking for one for boys are as negative as the feedback gets.”
The book was a family project. Johnathan Ellerbee, Vanae’s uncle, provided the illustrations for the book in April 2016.
Vanae, who is homeschooled, researched all kinds of indigenous cultures with her mother. Ellerbee then drew illustrations of the 6-year-old wearing their traditional dress and jewelry. Read more (4/27/17)
Magnus, in a shirt with the sleeves ripped off and a hat on backwards:
Hi! Your name tag says "I am... BETTER THAN YOU" and I think you just cheated at arm-wrestling a guy, which I didn't even know was an option. Do you want to be friends?
Lup, taking a step back, complimentary mints cascading from her pockets:
Whoa, holy shit, muscleman. Do you think you could pick me up?
Definitely. I could probably throw you too. These puppies can handle a lot.
Lup, already trying to clamber onto his shoulders:
Benchpress me, my man.
Taako, running back over with his arms full of cheap plastic pens and fridge magnets:
Lup, no, don't let the strange human boy carry you, you don't know where he's been!
Taako, come on, we're gonna go find some really high shelves to raid. Or maybe just a library to hold dominion over. We're unstoppable now.
Magnus, helping himself to some pocket mints:
I heard there are training rooms somewhere.
What Voltron Season 3 has Done to Our Sweet Children
Upside, finally got her own lion. Downside, found and alternate universe where she legalized slavery.
Didn't want the job, had to do it anyway. MAGNUS RUSHES IN.
Didn't want the job, didn't have to do it. Taako's good out here.
Asked for the job, but got transferred. Is still too slow for the Red Lion. Also, our sniper got a sniper rifle. Why couldn't his old weapon do that again?
Would've ROCKED the job, but the Green Lion has the only booster seat.
Who the hell do you think he is?
He's Squidward, he's Squidward, I'm Squidward! Are there any other Squidwards I should know about?!
Gathers a group of token women ethnic minorities and creates the illusion of a civil rights movement to expand government control and make himself look good. My god, the arch-nemesis of Voltron is neo-liberalism.
IDK, we're all still trying to memorize their names and decide on whom to marry first.
