 It is paramount that girls, pre-teens and teens of color with physical differences and disabilities are embraced psychologically, emotionally, physically and socially with a focus on their well-being and growth.  

Join Dr. Culbreth and guest, Ms. Brenda Scott-Coleman, author of Bren-Dee: A Child Who Survived On Bookmarks and The Girl With Many Faces for a discussion on how physical differences and disabilities affect children psychologically, emotionally, physically and socially. Topics include how being treated differently by other children can affect self-love, self-esteem, self-identity, self-respect and self-pride; love and nurturing, teachers, family, community members, medical care, adversity, race and color, paper dolls, creating your world, bookmarks, faith, prayer,  making friends, and inner beauty, among other topics. The discussion will also focus on Ms. Scott-Coleman’s best-selling books The Girl With Many Faces, a children’s book about a little girl with physical differences and Bren-Dee: A Child Who Survived On Bookmarks. Learn how Bren-Dee survived “school days that were hell and hospitals that became heaven.”
