The Story of Little Black Sambo

The Story of the Little Black Sambo

In the video that we watched in class about racism, there was a child's story book mentioned and I actually recognized it. I'm not 100% positive which book it was, because there might be different versions of it. But when I was little, I actually read that book! Crazy! Here's a link to it It's called The Story of the LIttle Black Sambo, I remember it and thought how strange it was that even when I was a kid there was still racist type propaganda even though racism wasn't nearly as prominent as in the early 1900's.

It's a really weird story, go ahead and read it.
