Because Black Women: How Art and Story Bring Two Civil Rights Icons to Life for Young Readers
Martin and Rosa. Nina and Claudette. All of these people are civil rights icons in their own right, but some are more famous than others. The stories of Nina Simone and Claudette Colvin aren't taught in every school the ways that Martin Luther King, Jr and Rosa Parks's are, despite their contributions to the movement. Nina Simone brought a voice to the civil rights movement through her protest songs. Claudette Colvin, before Rosa Parks, refused to give her seat up on a bus and her nonviolent dissent helped spark the Montgomery Bus Boycotts. Now the stories of these incredible Black women can gain a wider audience with the help of these two picture book biographies.

Traci N. Todd and Christian Robinson, the creators behind NINA: A STORY OF NINA SIMONE, and Tracey Baptiste and Tonya Engel, the creators behind BECAUSE CLAUDETTE, are joining Booklist and Penguin Young Readers for this one-hour long FREE webinar to discuss their new picture book biographies on Monday, October 18th at 3 PM CT. Moderated by author and teacher Vera Ahiyya.
