Freedom to Learn: SOMA Day of Action – Banned Book Reading

May 3, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Type of Event: In-Person

Day of Event Contact: Stephanie Lawson-Muhammad – lawsosot@gmail.com

This day of events on May 3 in South Orange and Maplewood is designed to unite everyone who believes in truth, including activists and racial justice allies in the fight against the College Board’s and the state of Florida’s attack on the African American Studies AP curriculum. We join solidarity with fellow activists across the nation with over 150 events scheduled and participate in a series of engaging local events.

Banned Book Readings: Gather at the South Orange Library (for teen/adult readings) and Maplewood Hilton branch Library (for elementary-aged readings) from 4:00-5:00 pm to experience the power of literature and knowledge.

Don’t miss this opportunity to stand up for racial justice and contribute to the fight for an inclusive and equitable education. Let’s come together as a community and take action!
