NOW VIRTUAL: THE NEW BROWNIES’ BOOK: A Love Letter to Black Families
Tuesday, February 13 at 6 pm
Free Zoom webinar

Now a virtual event! Join Village Preservation for a Zoom presentation about an exciting new children’s book that follows in the footsteps of The Brownies’ Book — the first magazine specifically aimed at Black youth, created by scholar, author, and activist W.E.B. Du Bois in the 1920s and published right here in our neighborhood at 70 Fifth Avenue. Nearly 100 years later, author, educator, and Du Bois scholar Dr. Karida L. Brown, and award‐winning artist and children’s book creator, Charly Palmer, revived and expanded upon The Brownies’ Book legacy and showcased new art and writing for children from today’s brilliant Black creators.
