kwame news



We want all of our children to know that they matter. That's why we need books that tell the whole history of who we are, how we got here, and what's possible for our tomorrow. Books that help us understand our own stories, the stories of our friends, our neighbors, and the stories of our country. Authors, teachers, parents, join our movement to nurture and inspire the imagination and strength of our children through reading books that matter — not banning them. #ReadStrong!
