     Aria is smart, strong and gifted. Yet the world’s portrait of black girls is different. Who will Aria believe? Her choice determines her destiny.


Royalty runs through your veins

         The task was simple. Visit elementary schools in        Philadelphia. Read "Aria's Crown" to students and            deliver a message that could change lives:

        In a world where black skin is seen as a threat,

        In a world that outlaws kinky hair, 

        I see you in a world that does not.

        I know the history. I know the sacrifice.

        Royalty  runs through your veins.
