We are so excited to announce that we are hosting a tour for The Black Kids by Christina Hammonds Reed! Today is Nox’s turn to introduce why we advocated for this book:)
I grew up hearing my dad’s stories about living in Inglewood during the LA Riots. I know that if it weren’t for his stories, I would’ve never learned about them, since our educational system doesn’t teach it to its students. Rodney King’s assault occurred nearly 30 years ago and it’s infuriating to know that his story is being erased because it teaches us something important, that nothing has changed for the Black community.
This is what drew me to The Black Kids – the fact that there is a book out there talking about an important part of Black history that’s been hidden from our textbooks means so much to me, as someone that grew up in LA.
We can’t wait for everyone to sign up for this tour, we are looking for African American and/or Black #OwnVoices reviewers. If that’s you, fill out the form here. If you know anyone that is African American and/or Black, please pass along this information to them in case they are interested.
