NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers finds that star Linsey Godfrey (Sarah Horton) is encouraging her daytime television fans to talk to their children about racism, one book at a time. Here’s what she has to say.
Sharing a photo of several African-American inspired books that include The Undefeated, Hidden Figures, and Hair Love, Linsey wrote, “Parents, it’s not just our jobs to be allies, we need to teach our children how to also be allies. To do that we have to talk about racism, our countries deep history of slavery, violence, oppression and marginalization and also systemic racism, among many other things. But we also need to show them stories highlighting black culture and art, stories of black excellence, those who created history and change. We not only have to be allies but we have to also celebrate a community for all its richness and culture.”
