“I am white. I have lived in white privilege. I thought I knew before adopting my daughter that I was in white privilege, that I understood what that meant. But until you actually have a child, which is like your heart being outside you, and that heart happens to be in a brown body, and you have people who are actively working against your child, it’s hard. It fills me with terror. I always tell [my daughter] that her curls are beautiful, your black skin is beautiful. You’re beautiful. You’re powerful. You’re a goddess.”

-Kristin Davis talks to Rebecca Carroll about her adopted daughter Gemma Rose, November 2016
