KidLit 4 Black Lives Rally - Watch the Recording

In two parts, the first for kids, and the second for adults, this online KidLit Rally 4 Black Lives is a must-watch.
A screen shot showing Jacqueline Woodson (right) speaking to young viewers. (One of many sign language interpreters who helped make the even more accessible is shown at left.)

The Kid-focused rally starts at about 10 minutes in,

and the adult part starts about 1:13:00 in.

The event features Jacqueline Woodson, Kwame Alexander, Jason Reynolds, and so many more important voices... 

Raul the Third shares his drawing of George Floyd with viewers.

And here's a link to the organizing The Brown Bookshelf's KidLit Rally 4 Black Lives: Anti-Racist Resources for Children, Families, and Educators.

It's well-worth your time.
