The Black Child Book Fair

“Black children need to see faces that look like theirs and stories about people that look like them, written by people that look like them,” writes Darryl Harvey, an author himself and the president of the Black Child Book Fair, which he’s taking to six cities around the country this spring and summer. His second stop is Louisville — the Roots 101 African American Museum in Louisville, specifically. He’ll be there along with authors Nakeyia Jones and Briana S. Parker. There will be presentations and readings, as well as performances by The Real Young Prodigys, Mighty Shades of Ebony and Lionheart.
