But it’s like, how are you going to change that anger into a teachable moment?” Graham who has been open with their struggles as an interracial couple said in her 2017 memoir, “A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like” that her family initially didn’t accept Justin, a videographer, because of his race making their early days of dating challenges. She added that: “I naively hoped everyone would be colourblind. I brought Justin home to Nebraska. #Racism- Ashley Graham's Black Husband Was Spat On While On A Vacation To Italy 2Now, I should probably mention that Justin is black, and that I didn’t grow up around many black people. The sum total of what I learned about African American culture in school was Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and the Underground Railroad. This was more than my mom knew; she didn’t even see a black person in real life until she was 18 years old.”#Racism- Ashley Graham's Black Husband Was Spat On While On A Vacation To Italy 3Photo Credit: Getty
