Through increased literacy in Black communities.
Black Men Read was started in 2018, to improve literacy outcomes among Black students in the greater DMV area.
When people read more great things start to happen; from economic growth to a reduction in poverty and crime, and increased education. Ultimately, the world becomes a better place.
Our most exciting event is growing! Now serving over 350 High School students Black Men Read is poised to double our reach. But we need your help to do that. A $10 pledge helps supply books to students, while larger donations defer event costs…
From picking monthly themes to book selections, designing meetups and experiences, our admins can help us shape BMR book clubs’ future.
Help us continue our mission by joining our Fundraising Committee to support behind-the-scenes planning while bringing several school events to life.
