A Note about Our Plans
Hi friends. We've had several conversations about how we want to address the upswell of support for Black Lives Matter, and the hopefully sustaining efforts by white people to adopt antiracist practices. To that end, we're expanding our brief to include the diverse books we missed as young readers and the amazing new books being published now. We're starting in September with Richard Wright's Black Boy.
