Experts say a lack of diversity in children’s books can be harmful to the social and identity development of children. Join the Butler Children’s Literature Center as we celebrate equity, diversity and inclusion during the observance of the 50th anniversary of the Coretta Scott King Book Awards. Visit the Butler Center to explore the Effie Lee Morris Collection of African American children’s books, including more than 40 CSK winners and honor books.
