Held at Scuppernong Books in Greensboro, NC, this event gave participants an opportunity to hear the book reading followed by a group discussion with the best-selling author of “Freedom on the Menu: The Greensboro Sit-Ins“, Carole Boston Weatherford. Participants received a FREE copy of the book, study guides, a free beverage and snack. Educators were also present to lend insight and guidance for talking to children. The audience, consisting of adults, parents, grandparents, caregivers and children learned that it is never too late or early to prepare children for positive interactions with others.
