Join us to hear Coretta Scott King Award-winner Charles R. Smith Jr. read from his wonderful new book that highlights the key moments in Black History for kids Ages 4-10.

In 28 DAYS, each day features a different influential figure in African-American history, from Crispus Attucks, the first man shot in the Boston Massacre, sparking the Revolutionary War, to Madame C. J. Walker, who after years of adversity became the wealthiest black woman in the country, as well as one of the wealthiest black Americans, to Barack Obama, the country's first African-American president.

With powerful illustrations by Shane Evans, this is a completely unique look at the importance and influence of African Americans on the history of this country.

In BRICK BY BRICK Charles R. Smith Jr. delivers the compelling story behind the building of the White House, a powerful part of history rarely taught. The home of our president was built by many hands, several of them slaves', who undertook this amazing achievement long before there were machines to do those same jobs

Charles Smith Jr. is a celebrated author, poet, and photographer. He has created more than twenty books, including award-winning book Twelve Rounds to Glory: The Story of Muhammad Ali and Black Jack: The Ballad of Jack Johnson. He currently lives in Poughkeepsie, New York, with his wife, Gillian, and three kids, Sabine, Adrian, and Sebastian.
