SURJ Bay Area Youth and Families Committee invites you to Racial Justice Story Time. Led by a variety of educators, activists, and community partners, Racial Justice Story Time engages the whole family with stories and activities to help start conversations about race and social justice issues. The event is best suited for kids ages 2-8, but all are welcome.
On June 23, Melissa Reyes will read her book, I Am Sausal Creek, a bilingual English and Spanish picture book about the history of Oakland told through the voice of a local waterway.
While this book explores the story of a local waterway, many of the themes are universal. As children read about the changes that have taken place over time and the impact different people have had on the landscape and each other, they also see the creek's resilience and understand how integral water is in supporting life.
Accessibility Information: ADA accessible. There is an elevator on the left when you enter the library that goes up to the second floor where the event will be held in the community room.
