Special Storytime: Breanna J. McDaniel

September 28, 2019
2:00pm
Free with Museum admission

 We begin small, but we grow big. Together we are mighty. High fives all around, hands up!

Join author and scholar Breanna J. McDaniel as she reads Hands Up!, her triumphant debut picture book recasting a charged phrase as part of a black girl’s everyday life–hands up for a hug, hands up in class, hands up for a high five–before culminating in a moment of resistance at a protest march. This interactive storytime will also include opportunities to move, sing, dance, and ask questions.
