Zoe Saldana On Raising Biracial Children As A First-Generation Latina
Zoe Saldana has her heart set on her kids knowing the world.
During dinner with her sisters and friends recently, Zoe raised the important issue of teaching her kids about their ancestry and taped the conversation for YouTube. As you’ll recall, the Nina actress and Italian artist Marco Perego got married in 2013 and welcomed twin boys in November of the following year.
Zoe explains, “It is a necessity for us to raise our children with our roots so that they can communicate with their grandparents, but also so that they can create some kind of empathy for human beings that do not look like them, and do not sound like them and do not smell like them.”
She went on to talk about the promises she made before having two children of her own.
