Ali Rey is Boss supports Miss Zee! *”The Miss Zee project started out as a coloring book created to uplift the underrepresented image of little girls of color by providing them with images that resembled [themselves], but it grew into something that became so much more.”
Ali Rey is Boss supports Miss Zee because we are on the same mission: to improve and sustain the self-image of young black children, little girls in this case. I admire the ambition and initiative of Gloria Smith, creator of Miss Zee, and the movement she has started with this character. How often do we see a children’s character that is centered around the representation of black children? Not often.
I believe that a figure such as Miss Zee has the potential to have a positive influence on the self-esteem and self-image of many little girls. It’s important for black girls to have someone to admire that looks like them! I believe that with positive figures such as Miss Zee we can continue to empower and uplift our children. Today’s 1st Question: “How important is it to have a figure that black children can relate to?”
