Yo, I just wrote a new post for the "M is for Movement" blog and its up. I was so juiced to hear about this event happening out in the DMV (?DC, Maryland, Virginia) area because it consists of mostly independent Black book creators and it reminded me of the Social Justice Holiday Book Fair. So, whether you're in the DMV or not I think you'll enjoy this short article.
If you follow Dana Clark Colors you'll hear more about the next one. And trust, this is a growing trend across the US where people of color are taking matters into their own hands and combating a lack of diversity by making the books and creating events where parents, teachers, librarians, and book lovers can get the stories they are not seeing. I've seen events like this popping up in Chicago, LA, ATL, and NYC. Plug innnn!
