CANCELLED: Virtual Storytime with Rio Cortez - The ABCs of Black History

Join us for a look into Black History; A Picture Book Storytime

This Event Has Been Cancelled

Letter by letter, The ABCs of Black History celebrates a story that spans continents and centuries, triumph and heartbreak, creativity and joy.
 
It’s a story of big ideas––P is for Power, S is for Science and Soul. Of significant moments––G is for Great Migration. Of iconic figures––H is for Zora Neale Hurston, X is for Malcom X. It’s an ABC book like no other, and a story of hope and love.

In addition to rhyming text, the book includes back matter with information on the events, places, and people mentioned in the poem, from Mae Jemison to W. E. B. Du Bois, Fannie Lou Hamer to Sam Cooke, and the Little Rock Nine to DJ Kool Herc.

 

Registration includes access to this live stream event the night of the event, before it is posted on Tattered Cover's YouTube Channel, two days after.
