AAAH!! I can’t wait to share this readathon with all of you! Black-a-thon will take place in February and is a celebration of black history, community, identity, and future. Join myself and my co-hosts as we read some fantastic own voices books with black protagonists! Challenges below:

FEEL THE LOVE Read a book (any genre) featuring romance between two black people (or one black person + a person of color).
WAKANDA FOREVER Read a graphic novel or comic series with a black or African MC
HEAR US ANY work by a black/african author
FEEL THE BEAT. Spoken word: listen to these 4 poems and share your favorite on social media or with a friend. Discuss what this poem means to you and why it matters.
