From School Library Journal: Authors Organize Kid Lit Rally for Black Lives on Facebook
Kwame Alexander, Jason Reynolds, and Jacqueline Woodson have organized a Kit Lit Rally for Black Lives on The Brown Bookshelf Facebook page on Thursday June 4 at 7 p.m. EDT. There will be two separate 45-minute conversations, one for young people and a second for parents, educators, and librarians.
“Kwame Alexander, Jason Reynolds, and Jacqueline Woodson have organized a Kidlit Rally for Black Lives,” a Facebook post from The Brown Bookshelf said. “Honored that we will host it on The Brown Bookshelf’s FaceBook Live. We invite you to join us on Thursday, June 4 and spread the word. People around the nation are hurting. This is a time to come together and stand up. Our kids need us, and we are here for them. (School-age kids welcome).”
The Brown Bookshelf is an online resource that promotes awareness of Black children’s book creators.
The Rally will be recorded, and will include ASL interpretation.
