'We Are Not Makers of History. We Are Made by History.'"
Dads Richard and Carlos with Timothy, New York, NY (@therealdadsofnewyork):

As Afro- Caribbean parents, we hope to both acknowledge and celebrate our son's culture — connecting him with his rich and diverse heritage. In the words of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 'We are not makers of history. We are made by history.'"
