It’s MLK Day and Invisible Ennk is (black) proud to announce the next edition in the 39 Lessons series, 39 Lessons for Black Girls & Boys. It will be released on February 1, 2020, just in time for Black History Month ✊🏽.
39 Lessons for Black Boys & Girls is a series of affirmations and lessons that promote self-esteem, education, justice and wisdom among Black children of all ages. This book is also a great kick-starter for in-depth conversations about race with boys and girls of all ethnicities.
Why is this edition necessary? Isn’t the title somewhat divisive? What does this book have to say that the previous ones in the 39 Lessons series didn’t already say?
This book is about race – specifically the Black race. Being Black in the United States, or anywhere else for that matter, is a nuanced experience. It is within those layers, if left unaddressed, that identity can be lost. So we must talk to our Black children about race.
If it’s treated as a taboo topic, imagine how powerless and unloved Black children may eventually feel. Oh, and while this book is addressed to them, it’s for children of every race to enjoy. Unlike the previous editions that retail for $12.99, 39 Lessons for Black Boys & Girls will be priced at $5.99 so that more children have access to it.
