To ignite and empower communities of color by inspiring literacy. Through mentorship and advocacy, we aim to improve educational outcomes and foster a lifelong love of reading with a focus on Black men and boys.
Last year was AMAZING! And in 2020 we are looking to do it bigger and at more 2 more High Schools. We love to crank up the fun level a notch and mix our favorite past time, reading with our favorite music genre, HIP-HOP! Would you help us by donating funds to help us put together a fun event to inspire young readers to read great literature? Each student will receive a copy of the book of three books chosen by their peers. The students will read these awesome, music inspired books and attend a culminating, music filled event hosted by national recording artist, COLE HICKS, and have the chance to drop a hot 16 for a chance to win awesome prizes.$4,225.00 donated of $6,570.00 goalDonate
