DC International School Black History Month Culture Fest

February 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The DC International School library was a “booth” at our school-wide Black History Month Culture Fest. In the library we offered:

  • Multiple displays of books by Black authors that community members could browse
  • A display of books that have won the Coretta Scott King and Walter Dean Myers Awards
  • Question prompts such as “What is your favorite Black book?” and “Who is your favorite Black Author” and space for answers to be written
  • Read alouds by current students
  • Shelf talker creation – where community members write a blurb to advertise books we have in our collection
