100 Black Men of Austin Launches Black Men Read Initiative During Black History Month

The 100 Black Men of Austin, in partnership with Toyota North Austin, launched the Black Men Read Initiative during Black History Month.  This initiative is to make reading fun for students by hosting read-alongs at select elementary schools and provide books for students to build home libraries.  Steve Riddick, General Manager of Toyota North Austin kicked off the initiative by reading, “Little People, Big Dreams, Rosa Parks” to Campbell Elementary’s 3rd grade class.  Students shared their thoughts on the impact Rosa Parks made and encouraged each other to understand the importance of history and being change makers for the future.
