“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.”
― Kofi Annan
For many years African American leaders, mothers and fathers have fought for the right to be educated; the desire to play on level playing fields have fueled most of America’s battles for human rights. The battles we were once oppressed by now haunt our children in different ways – they somehow have oppressed themselves. So in respect for the fight our ancestors have proudly won, we here at Mocha Girls Read invite you to invite your children to join in with us on some summer reading.
“If they took the idea that they could escape poverty through education, I think it would make a more basic and long-lasting change in the way things happen. What we need are positive, realistic goals and the willingness to work. Hard work and practical goals.”
~ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
“When a reader enters the pages of a book of poetry, he or she enters a world where dreams transform the past into knowledge made applicable to the present, and where visions shape the present into extraordinary possibilities for the future.”
― Aberjhani, Collected Visions of a Skylark Dressed in Black
