There is no getting away from the fact that Africa still has a long way to go when it comes to development and drawing level with the Western world. The question is: is the Black Child born disadvantaged? Does the Black Child come with the odds already stacked against him or is life an even playing field for black and white alike?
And if this s/he is disadvantaged, what does a solution look like? How do we bridge the gap? Is there a way we can give our babies a fighting chance? What can we put in their psyche from birth to re-tweak the way they see themselves? The way they see the world?
