Brown Angels 

A unique video of African American children to give them and others an opportunity to recognize that all children laugh, respond, have fun, and are engaging. Children, especially when they are able to see themselves develop better attitudes, self esteem and have a more positive outlook. This is a commendable project and one that will delight children of all ages. It's a 30-minute tape and it is definitely fun. Along with the engaging children is a terrific sound track with jazz renditions of traditional lullabies performed by New Orleans jazz musicians.
