Representation is an integral building block of community strength and equity. In partnership with St. Louis Black Authors of Children’s Literature, The Power of Words: The Ongoing Tale of Black Children’s Literature will share the ongoing effort toward black representation in children’s literature. From the trail blazers of the Black literacy movement to the impressive work of modern African American authors, our main gallery will feature works that promote connections between stories and their young readers, foster a love of reading, and celebrate strength in diversity.
