The Black Child Book Fair
Where children of color can find books for them written by people who look like them.
The Black Child Book Fair, LLC promotes African-American focused reading materials in urban
communities nationwide to enrich the educational, emotional, developmental and social needs of youth
with diverse backgrounds.
The Black Child Book Fair was created by Darryl Harvey in 2019. Black parents told him that it was
difficult to find books for children of color several times over a period of a few years, so Mr. Harvey
organized the first event to an elated crowd in Chicago.
Since its debut the Black Child Book Fair has
appeared in over 15 cities and has plans to increase its national audience as well as international.
