Representation is an integral building block of a strong and equitable community. 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 continued efforts towards equitable representation in children’s and young adult literature. Learn about the trail blazers of Black storytelling like Langston Hughes and discover the impressive work of modern African American authors like Patricia McKissack, whose books continue to inspire new generations. From spoken tales to digital fiction, the stories featured in our main gallery exist to encourage young readers, foster a love of reading, and celebrate pride in diversity.
