KidLit Rally 4 Black Lives - So Important - Watch The Recording!

In two parts, the first for kids, and the second for adults, this online KidLit Rally 4 Black Lives is a must-watch.

A screen shot showing Jacqueline Woodson (right) speaking to young viewers at about 25 minutes into the recording. (One of many sign language interpreters who helped make the even more accessible is shown at left.)

The Kid-focused rally starts at about 10 minutes in, and the adult part starts about 1:13:00 in.

The event features Jacqueline Woodson, Kwame Alexander, Jason Reynolds, and so many more important voices...

Raul the Third shares his drawing of George Floyd with viewers at 1:29

Go watch it now.

And here's a link to the organizing The Brown Bookshelf's KidLit Rally 4 Black Lives: Anti-Racist Resources for Children, Families, and Educators.

I'm so glad I watched this - and recommend you watch it as well.

The light in me recognizes and acknowledges the light in you,
