I recently sat down with Dr. Judith Davis and Chinyere Amaefule, of The Third Institute, one of our generous 2020 Summer Adventure gold sponsors. In this interview, we discuss The Third Institute’s unique Roots program, which highlights African American heroes and sheroes at our library each month and how their sponsorship is putting much needed Black literature in the hands of children in our community.
