So I’m still looking for a blog post on the importance of #ownvoice stories. I can’t believe no one has written this. In fact, I think I’m just looking with the wrong keywords. But I won’t give up, because I want you all to know about this. In the meantime, this article on the effects of television consumption on kid’s self-esteem is an example of what I’d like to share. Not seeing yourself in books and television, or seeing yourself in a bad light, can have profound effects on the psyche of kids.
