My Brother Santa
Great Granddaddy's Christmas Storytelling Magic

A Black-Identifying Biracial Child's Great Grandfather tells him about his buddy Santa, and his epic journey one Christmas Eve; it's a multiracial, multi-generational family Christmas featuring Black Santa.

Jelani knows who he is. His Daddy is Black, his Mommy is white, and Jelani looks forward to growing up into a Proud Black Man like Daddy, and Granddaddy, and Great Granddaddy, too! It's a video chat with Great Granddaddy today that will take him - and readers - on a journey with Santa as he tries to return to the North Pole in time for Christmas. Along the way, we'll meet a diverse cast of African American characters with warm childhood memories of Santa's kindness, who are excited to help him today.

Each illustrated scene stands as an individual piece of art. Every page promises new details to uncover upon a second and third reading.

Lets get to the parts our readers care about most: this book has not only 2 cats but one dog AND a reindeer, AND a cowboy! There's a party, and an ATV, and a train, and a surprise on the last page!

And, oh yeah, there's Black Santa! Order Your Copy Today

Coming Soon from the Authors and Illustrator of "My Brother Santa: Great Granddaddy's Christmas Storytelling Magic" is the new Children's Book: "Captain Smalls: Great Granddaddy's Storytelling Magic"

While researching this book, which is about Captain Robert Smalls (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Smalls), we found out that last year South Carolina officially made *May 13* “Robert Smalls Day.” #robertsmallsday

We built robertsmallsday.com, and we'll be promoting the holiday there and on social media, and made the attached flyer to help promote the holiday.

We’re writing & illustrating the book so more people will know the story of Robert Smalls, and the holiday does that, too. Everyone needs to hear this story. Everyone deserves to hear this story. And when you hear this story, you want to celebrate. This history should be celebrated. And of course, we could use more holidays about the many heroic Black People that white supremacists attempted to erase.

Here are some ways to celebrate:
1. Reading about Robert Smalls and talking about him with family & friends.
2. Grilling / sharing a meal with those closest to you (one point that gets lost in previous tellings of Smalls’ story is that he didn’t commandeer the Planter and escape by himself, but did so with the help of his crew and family. So one way to celebrate is with the people you depend on the most.)
3. “Low Country Boil” comes from the area in South Carolina where Smalls lived. So making a Low Country Boil at home, or, where possible, ordering one from a Black Owned Restaurant, is a fun way to celebrate.
4. Supporting Black Owned Businesses is always a good way to celebrate a Holiday recognizing the stolen labor of Black People.

If you wanted an extra excuse to celebrate in May, here it is!
