Join the Read Woke Challenge

This challenge is inspired by Cicely Lewis, award winning librarian and creator of the Read Woke movement. Here's an excerpt from Cicely's blog on what it means to Read Woke:


"Read Woke is a movement. It is a feeling. It is a style. It is a form of education. It is a call to action; it is our right as lifelong learners. It means arming yourself with knowledge in order to better protect your rights. Knowledge is power and no one can take it away. It means learning about others so that you can treat people with the respect and dignity that they deserve no matter their religion, race, creed, or color."


Use this challenge template at any time to bring #ReadWoke to your school or library community. Discover diverse books, log activities, and READ WOKE.
