Black Youth Matter

These images were originally created for a Kid Lit Equality campaign back in 2014 when Michael Brown was killed by police in Ferguson, MO. The campaign was specifically drawing the connections between the lack of reflection in children's books for our black and brown children and the resulting violence and risk these children face into adulthood. The conversation is still relevant and much needed today and these coloring pages offer an opportunity to celebrate and revere our black youth while sparking dialogue during these radically transformative times. Watch some of the videos from the 2014 campaign below the coloring pages.
