Sasha Bonner is the mother of a 2-year-old ballerina and wants to provide her daughter the knowledge to be who she aspires to be.
Riley Johnson has taken Black History Month on with a fun twist. The mother and daughter duo began reading up on African American woman who impacted society and Bonner came up with the creative idea to play dress up in an educational way. Every day of February Bonner helps her toddler dress up as an influential African American woman.
Bonner came up with the idea while young Riley was home sick with the flu and on quarantine. Her mother wanted to find something creative to pass the time.
They began with learning about black ballerinas which were their first post on Misty Copeland.
Bonner also wanted Riley to know she can be anything she wants to be with the goal of exposing her daughter to everything so she has knowledge on people that look like her. Keep up with who young Riley will dress up as next on Instagram @motherofriley_.
