Around the nation, people are hurting. Kids in particular may be feeling unsure and questioning how they can help their family, friends, and neighbors. Several award-winning authors such as Kwame Alexander, Jacqueline Woodson, Jason Reynolds and many other leading voices in children's literature are hosting a KidLit Rally for Black Lives on June 4th for a talk with young people from 6:00-6:45 p.m. CT and 6:45-7:30 p.m. CT with parents, educators, and librarians. You can access the rally on Facebook Live @THEBROWNBOOKSHELF
By learning together, having conversations, and listening with openness, we can support understanding and community healing.
