“Education [is]…the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.”

Paulo Freire

We believe that books can be a powerful tool in waking people up. 

“The greatest mistake of the movement has been to try and organize a sleeping people around specific goals. You have to wake people up first. Then you get action.”

MALCOLM X

We believe education paired with collective action can empower and transform communities.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

MAYA ANGELOU

We believe it is our responsibility to each other and to ourselves to work towards collective liberation.

“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”  

LILLA WATSON

We believe that racial and economic justice are intertwined. 

“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.”
