We are excited about the Black is Beautiful Book Project created by Student Ambassador Ray Steward. Ray is on the mission to get brand new books with characters that look like him to students across the Texas Panhandle. He wants to help students and teachers to embrace #BlackisBeautiful. To date, The Black is Beautiful Book Project has provided 270 books to teachers in Amarillo, Texas, and 905 books to teachers in Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Maryland, and South Carolina. That’s 1,175 students who received books with characters that look like themselves to unlock their love of reading. Way to go Ray for getting this project started in the heart of the Texas Panhandle!!! πŸ€©πŸ’―πŸ“šπŸŽ‰ We are proud of Ray for helping create the Black is Beautiful Book Project. Help Ray to uplift and encourage students across the Texas Panhandle and beyond.
