SHOW NOTES: Raising Dion and Respecting Boundaries

Actors Ja’Siah Young and Alisha Wainwright in “Raising Dion”

If you haven’t seen the TV show (based on a comic book), Raising Dion, then you’re missing out. Yes, it’s about a kid that wakes up one day with superpowers, but it’s about so much more than that. Like the struggles of single parenthood, the relationship between a mother and son, navigating the world as a young Black boy, love, grief, friendship, toxic masculinity, and way way more. Honestly, there are almost too many emotions you’ll feel while watching this show. So yeah it’s another superhero show that involves telekinesis and invisibility and…Legos(?), but it will also remind you what it felt like to be a kid learning some of life’s biggest lessons.
