An Interview with Cheril Clarke about Keesha and Her Two Moms

This interview took place on Thursday, June 30, 2011 on WPEB radio. I had a very important talk with Cheril about her book KEESHA AND HER TWO MOMS and her holiday coloring book called MY FAMILY! These works recognize children of same sex loving parents of color. We later talked about the importance of more media that recognizes children of such partnerships. -RF.
