Loving Yourself…Inside and Out

In our 6th grade health classes, we are currently talking to students about body image.  We use a lot of resources to help our students understand that we all come in different shapes, sizes, colors, etc.  But nothing is a better example than personal stories.  Here’s Oscar winning Lupita Nyong’o speech on Black Beauty and the importance of loving yourself…Inside and out.

This would also be a great addition and example in Media Literacy Lessons.
