Barbers, Books, Bridges Community Event
The African American Museum & Library at Oakland welcomes Barbers, Books, and Bridges for a special community event toward providing multi-cultural literature for youth. The event will feature storytelling, a book giveaway and conversation on the value of promoting culturally relevant reading materials to raise awareness and urgency, so that every classroom speaks to its student body and represents a diversity of experiences.
Barbers, Book, and Bridges is an Oakland-based non-profit organization that works to strengthen community relationships and promote learning through culturally representative and empowering literature.
Please join us for the special Black History Month program in honor of this year’s theme, The Crisis in Black Education.
