If Rush is mad then you must be doing something very right! Thanks for continuing to support and promote quality literature and share the American story from a variety of perspectives.

Paula Young Shelton, elementary school teacher and author of Child of the Civil Rights Movement


In the face of Rush Limbaugh's attack on Teaching for Change in June of this year, you positively overwhelmed us with calls, emails, Facebook comments, tweets, donations, and book orders
Thank you for letting us know that you stand by our commitment to feature children's books by and about people of color and not to sell Limbaugh's "history" books for children. 
While the attack by Limbaugh was very visible, the crisis caused by corporate publishers and Amazon has a more devastating impact  on the publication and availability of multicultural children's literature. 

In the last five years, less than 10% of children's books published were about people of color. Our bookstore fights against this trend, but we cannot continue without your help. 
It will take sustained support from you and your networks to keep our progressive bookstore and webstore in operation and to continue tp promote access to progressive, multicultural children's literature.
