Black Men Read & The Fair Housing Five

Black Men Read Kid’s Club

We are excited to partner with Black Men Read, a community reading series focused on sharing the stories of Black people with local youth. Guest reader Alex Thomas will be reading The Fair Housing Five and The Haunted House at the Superior Township Library, located at 8795 MacArthur Blvd. in Ypsilanti, on Saturday, December 1st at 11 AM. All are welcome; we hope you will join us.

The Fair Housing Five is an illustrated children’s book that tells the story of five children that take action in response to a landlord who is discriminating in their neighborhood.

This book is designed to initiate conversations about housing discrimination, systemic inequality, and the important role that we all have in ending both. We also hope the book will empower youth and adults alike to advocate for justice and create positive change in their communities.

The mission of Black Men Read states: “We promote the power of stories, storytelling and literacy to normalize the historical and cultural contributions of Black people through stories while uplifting Black men all of the ways that they engage in their families and communities.”

This event is a partnership with Black Men Read and the Ypsilanti District Library.
