Black History Month Teach-Ins

Feel free to share around!

In honor of Black History Month and in partnership with John C Hart Memorial Library, Yorktown for Justice is proud to present a series of age-leveled teach-ins for the community. The event will take place from 10am-1pm in the community room of the library on Saturday February 26th. At 10am, librarian Daphne Revie will lead the children’s teach-in with a focus on Black art and artists. At 11am, Yorktown High School Counselor Daks Armstrong will lead teens in a discussion about what is means to advocate for others. At 12pm, Paul Edwards will facilitate a conversation for adults about the power of representation.

Throughout the event, we will also have a craft station set up for all ages. We will be providing supplies to create a bookmark that honors Black History Month with quotes, images, and graphics.

ALSO! Please feel free to bring a new or used book in recognition of Black history, anti-racism, representation, advocacy, etc. Donated books will go towards community programming and be made available to the public.
