Welcome to the
Thank you all for joining us this Summer in celebration of Black illustrators and children’s book authors. We hope that you and your young children enjoyed listening to and reading these beautiful books featuring Black characters. The festival stretched far and wide, engaging over a 100,000 people across 44 countries worldwide! We were able to give away 1,800 books and arts+craft supplies to kids from Maine to Florida.
We are excited to invite you all to join us again next Summer as we celebrate virtually and hopefully in person; more Black children’s books created by more Black writers and illustrators.
Please help us by donating. It takes a village!
