As a part of Microsoft’s Black History Month Programming, we are offering a number of Children’s book readings read aloud by prominent influencers from the Black community.

Join us as we listen to the book reading:
Thurgood by Jonah Winter
Known as a one-man weapon against the discriminatory laws against Black Americans, Thurgood Marshall was a giant of the Civil Rights Movement. As a lawyer, he argued and won legal battles before the Supreme Court, including one of the most important cases in American history: Brown v Board of Education – which unanimously ruled that racial segregation of children in public schools to be unconstitutional. Thurgood then went on to become the first Black U.S. Supreme Court Justice in history.

These events are designed for students K-2nd grade but are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Black History. Please sign up below!
