This album is for all our babies who grow up in a country that doesn't treat them fairly. That fails them. But one where they will always strive beyond all limits and expectations. #werise #ourkids #alphabetrockers #rise #shine #woke

Depth of knowledge right here.
Today's work: assemblies in Alameda with DJ @wonwayposibul where 5th graders told us it was important to STOP RACISM, Not judge, and to BREAK STEREOTYPES. The school then brainstormed how to do it. Classes are going to meet cross grade levels- to get to know one another past flash judgements in the hall. Meanwhile the kindergarten is going to stop bullying by setting up and decorating a BUDDY BENCH for kids to sit on when they need someone to play with. Our kids see everything, including possibilities. Are you listening? ❤️👂🏽✌🏾
Way to go @target! What a great message for kids to wear, and we ❤️ that you have some gender neutral clothes for kids. Will be rocking your clothes for our photo shoot today. Words have power and we use our power to be allies! #alphabetrockers
Last day at a school where a student presents their class book: HIP HOP IS LIFE. Mission accomplished. And loved the shirt - #inthisfamily #blacklivesmatter #loveislove #alphabetrockers
Today's kindergarten classes dove into unique handshakes and nicknames for their skin colors. Inspired by our song Gimme Some Skin and The Colors of Us students are inspired to give their color a nickname. These included: pancakes, cupcakes, stars, Jupiter and sparkle. Let them imagine and play while they build racial literacy.
Time flies when you are on the grind! Ten years a member of @the.grammys and even more as a professional artist. I feel our new work is truly improving the environment for music and the lives of our creative community- so seems like we are on the same path. Ours with explicit goals for justice and understanding! #Grammys #alphabetrockers #decade
