Reading for the Children



How do you respect yourself? Your family? Friends? Teachers? Classmates?

Those were just a few of the questions that I asked the children at the North Lauderdale Saraniero Branch Library when I read for them during Black History Month.





I read from Marcus and the Amazons, which combines the values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Marcus Garvey into a fable about an ant who must rescue his colony from an invading army. It was a pleasure to read for the children and pass along a little of the wisdom that I have learned from my heroes.




Give thanks to Melody Chait, Youth Services Supervisor, who invited me to read for the children. I'm looking forward to another reading in June during Caribbean History Month.
