HIA (History In Action) Toys believes that understanding history equips us with a roadmap to deal with these challenges and uncertainties. They are devoted to educating African-Americans, and especially African American youth, about our history. Their line of action figures:
Benjamin Banneker Action Figure
Bessie Coleman Action Figure
Matthew Henson Action Figure
provide an entry point for pre-teens to the incredible story that is the Journey of African-Americans in America. As such, we provide a meaningful way to start conversations about the lessons of African-American history with the young people in your life.
With your support, we believe we can help all of us place recent incidents in context and provide a positive approach to critical self-identity issues. These action figures demonstrate and exemplify our ability to overcome and excel, even under the harshest of circumstances. You have a role in empowering youth—Take action today by:
- Purchasing a "Black History In Action" figure for a young person in your circle of influence;
- Purchasing a "Black History In Action" figure and allowing HIA to donate on your behalf to a charity that provides for children in need (place “Donation” in order notes);
- Following @HIAToys and retweeting to your family and colleagues; and/or
- Sharing this e-mail with individuals who influence and shape lives, particularly young African-American lives.
