Saturday Children’s Story Hour

Let it Shine dust jacket

Travel across time and visit different parts of the world through the magic of reading. Our books acquaint us with people, places, and events, (both real and fictional) that shape our understanding of African Americans, others in the African diaspora, and peoples of the African continent.

Ashley Bryan, in his book, Let it Shine: Three Favorite Spirituals, invites us to lift our voices in celebration of music freely loved and sung today, but composed by those once enslaved. (October 5)
