We exist to ignite social change by creating opportunities through literacy within Black communities.
Books and Bars Campaign (FY 2022)
Our biggest and most exciting event is growing bigger! Now serving over 400 High School students we are poised to reach and inspire more students especially our target group, Black males. We need your assistance in making this event bigger and better. Small donations like $10 helps supply a book for a student while larger donations help defer the costs of entertainment, author guests, food, technology costs and contest prizes.Read More...
