The New Brownies’ Book: A Love Letter to Black Families at LREI Lower and Middle School

In the 1920s W. E. B. Du Bois started “The Brownies’ Book,” the first magazine for Black youth. Nearly 100 years later Du Bois scholar Dr. Karida L. Brown and award‐ winning artist, Charly Palmer, revived and expanded upon the Brownies’ Book legacy. Join Village Preservation as they discuss that legacy and their children’s book, showcasing new art and writing for children from today’s Black creators. Free, Pre-registration recommended.
