Join Royal Readers as we celebrate Black History Month!

This month we will read Carter Reads a Newspaper.

“Carter G. Woodson didn’t just read history. He changed it.” As the father of Black History Month, he spent his life introducing others to the history of his people.

Royal Readers is a youth-Led reading program that encourages youth to express themselves, promote diversity, build confidence and foster a love of reading and learning.

Youth readers listen to stories from their peers and engage in interactive activities to build social skills. Youth participants can sign up to be the featured reader for the following month.

The program is also an opportunity for families to meet others from the community, chat and get to know each other.

This event is free and open to the public.

Our Children are born leaders!

Yesterday the Matthew's family helped to  kick off the Royal Readers program at the Fall River Public Library. The event was led by Prince Jason, a fourth grade student in the city. 

These kids were amazing! 

Families listened as the Matthew's family read their book The Fantastic Four and the Cooking Disaster.  Prince Jason who was the master of ceremonies (MC)  introduced the authors and guided the entirety of the event. 

These Royal Readers demonstrated their public speaking and reading literacy skills as they read and connected with the audience. It was clear these Royal Readers loved to read and wasn't shy when it came to sharing their love of books!

Participants took pictures with the youth authors and enjoyed signed copies of the book to take home and add to their libraries.

Bristol Black Collective would like to thank all who attended the first Royal Readers program. Thank you to our Royal Readers , the Matthew's Family and the Fall River Public Library for your partnership and support.

If you missed the event join us for the next event in February. 


Save the date for our next event on Monday, February  27 at 4pm.


The event is free for all participants and is a series of monthly events.
