All books will be donated to Milwaukee Public Schools
Carvd N Stone Inc.—a media company that’s dedicated to providing the news that major news outlets overlook—is hosting their first book drive entitled Authors of Color Book Drive which runs until June 1. All books given to Authors of Color Book Drive will be donated to Milwaukee Public Schools. By June 1, the goal is to reach 1,000 books all written by authors of color. All books must be either gently used or new and be written by authors of color.
Authors of Color Book Drive was created to provide MPS students with books written by people that look like, talk like and have been through similar situations as them. With our media company being founded by an MPS alumni, we understand the importance of literacy and being able to see and read about someone who mirrors ourselves. Those who donate will be helping our students reach a brighter future.
“I’ve always had a love for reading and to be able to provide that to our youth is something I look forward to doing,” said President of Carvd N Stone Inc., Nyesha Stone. “Our students deserve more, and CNS will continue to find ways to encourage and inspire our youth.” Stone was inspired by 14-year-old Marley Dias to do her own book drive through Carvd N Stone Inc.
Milwaukee is the number one most segregated city in the U.S. and that’s even true inside of our schools. The system is broken, and the students aren’t being taught their full histories, so it’s our job to give them the opportunities to learn about who they truly are. MPS has been ridiculed, underfunded and left behind, especially when it comes to resources such as books.
Authors of Color Book Drive is a continuous effort to hopefully inspire other organizations, community members and individuals to find their own ways to give back.
