Thank you for considering donating to this initiative which places books by diverse voices on bookshelves, classrooms, and Little Free Library locations around the West Georgia area. Books include those on racial justice, history, classics, fiction, memoir, children's books, and more, most having to do with Black stories and Black lives.
Since early Summer 2020 this fund has enabled us to distribute hundreds of books by, about, and starring Black voices throughout our region, including books like Audre Lorde's Sister Outsider, the March graphic novels by John Lewis, and Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi, to name just a few examples. Recipients of donated books include local classrooms, Little Free Libraries, and the West Georgia Regional Library System. With your help, we hope to get more books, in both print and audio formats, that advance racial justice, representation, and equality in front of readers throughout our region.
As one of our partners in this initiative Morgan Bradley writes, “While many people, like me, can not and should not be the narrative voice of the Black Lives Matter movement... We can do our part to hear, uplift and spread the voices of those in the black community who have already done the work to document their lives and the black perspective for generations.”. Item #5736
