Proof that kids love Santa Claus, no matter his skin color, as children lined up to visit the first African American Santa Claus at the Mall at Greece Ridge today.
Local photography studio, Goodknews Photography, brought “Soul Santa” to Villa,a clothing and shoe store in the mall.
The owner of the studio says he really enjoyed seeing the kids reactions.
“Just seeing the positive reception from all the kids, not just the black kids or minority kids, but kids of all ages and kids of all races, love Santa Clause, period,” said Chris Cardwell, CEO and Owner of Goodknews Photography.
The Soul Santa photo shoot began in 2012 and has been held at the Goodknews Photography Studio.
This was the first year he came out to a local mall.
