The Boss & Awaken Librarian Team-up Again!
The above slides are just the creative and visual graphics of the same titled lesson I wrote for PBS NewsHour. Please click on that link because I worked hard to ensure those primary resources were well researched and representative of two icons that used their platforms to change the world: Mrs. Ida B. Wells and Billie "Lady Day" Holiday!
Art has always been a passion of mine. Whether I'm painting, drawing, playing my cello, cooking, I will always interpret and release what is inside of me or provoking a response. That, in essence, is art in its multitudes of forms. I believe everyone has a bit of artist in them. It can be in a craftmanship like old school blacksmiths, sculpture carving like Michelangelo, or fashionable art like Beyonce's Lemondae or Renaissance album (Gotta show my fellow H-town girl some love on her banging new release!)

Also, I wouldn't be a librarian worth her salt if I didn't at least give you a sneak peak as to what you can expect from such an engaging and wonderful expression of healing.
