Event Details

Wed, Feb 16, 3-3:30pm Pacific

San Francisco Public Library and the San Francisco Unified School District youth librarians team up to talk about Black Joy. Join BIPOC librarians Rachel Fiege (SFPL), Jason Hill (SFPL) and Ayana Thompson (SFUSD), for a virtual conversation about Black Joy in librarianship, schools, youth literature and beyond. They discuss how Black youth should have access to positive stories about their heritage that aren’t rooted in stereotypes or sidekick roles by sharing their personal insights about working with Black youth and how they spread Black Joy to their young patrons, students and families. They share booklists, online resources and their own personal favorites including Coretta Scott King award titles and more.

Presented by San Francisco Public Library
