My 7 year old niece loves the Princess and the Frog and especially because it shows a black girl as a princess. Yesterday, my sister told me that my niece refused to do a requested report on princesses because her little best friend from school, a white girl, said the typical..."you can't be a princess because you are a black girl" statement...a statement I have heard a lot as a black girl growing up. My sister said she is going to make her daughter do the report and to use the opportunity to talk about African princesses. I told her to not stop there...that Europe also has black princesses. I told her about HSH Princess Angela and others. Go to utube and look up Princess Angela, an Afro Panamanian girl living in NY. Also Monaco has a high ranking black woman. I can only suggest that we haven't heard of them because they are black and our medium is controlled.Answer Question
