    • Wee Are Every Good Thing: Celebrating and Affirming Our BIPOC Children

      If you're a parent or educator of color, chances are you grew up rarely (or maybe never) seeing yourself reflected in the books that filled your local library or classroom. But today, in 2021, we are witnessing an #ownvoices movement - a renaissance of children's literature by Black, Latinx, Asian, and Indigenous creators. Join racial justice project Wee The People for a deep dive into the world of powerful, affirming, and gorgeously illustrated children's books by BIPOC authors and illustrators. Geared for audiences of color, this workshop will hold space for parents, caregivers, educators, artists, activists, clergy, clinicians, and others to share experiences as we explore a wide range of characters and themes in children's books, from Radiant Child to My Hair Is a Garden to I Am Every Good Thing. This workshop will be led by Wee the People co-founder and children's book author Francie Latour, whose award-winning picture book Auntie Luce's Talking Paintings tells an inter-generational tale of culture, community, and identity through a Haitian-American girl and her beloved aunt, an artist who lives in Haiti. Wee The People is grounded in the belief that if kids can understand fairness, they can understand justice and that adults play a huge role in connecting kids’ sense of fairness in their own lives to larger issues of injustice in the world. This program is part of our week-long series, Standing Up Together: An Anti-Racism & Social Justice Series for Young People & Their Families. Funding for this series has generously been provided by the Cambridge Public Library Foundation.
