Wee Tell the Truth: a Workshop Series for
Ages 8-12

More than ever before, we are seeing the power of children's literature to tackle hard truths about our shared history. Inspired by these picture books, we've developed a series of workshops for kids 8-12: Wee Tell the Truth.

 

Featuring bold, lyrical storytelling from BIPOC and LGBTQ+ creators, these workshops take on subjects like the Tulsa Race Massacre, Native American residential schools, the Stonewall uprising, the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and even the racial terrorism of lynching.

 

This workshop series for kids includes a mini-workshop to support teachers and school leaders before introducing the material to students.
