As a Mom, the Casting of an African American Ariel in 'The Little Mermaid' Is So Important to Me

As a Mom, the Casting of an African American Ariel in 'The Little Mermaid' Is So Important to Me Stephanie Hollifield/Facebook I had a discussion with a friend about how excited I was for my daughter to see the upcoming The Little Mermaid movie. I told her I that was I was so proud that my daughter might be able to see herself in Ariel, a beautiful black princess. My friend didn’t understand the big deal. She “doesn’t see color.” She thinks that it doesn’t matter what race or ethnicity characters are, because we are all the same. I have learned a lot in the past few years. I have learned why it matters that our kids see diversity through their media. I hope I explained it well and that she heard my heart.

It’s no secret that H&M loves a collab. From Moschino to Kenzo, the large retailer has managed to create with some of the most luxe brands however, nothing has come from South Africa.

The Mantsho label, meaning “black is beautiful” in Mokubung’s native Sesotho language, was established in 2004 and has since graced runways in the U.S., Greece, India, Jamaica, Nigeria, Botswana, and Senegal.
