Zawadi Books Suggestions for July

“The outside world told black kids when I was growing up that we weren’t worth anything. But our parents said it wasn’t so, and our churches and our schoolteachers said it wasn’t so. They believed in us, and we, therefore believed in ourselves”  -Marian Wright Edelman
