Continuing the work...
A 2018 ALA smore report by Caitlin Jacobson, Ketchikan

Last summer she arranged for speakers to address the current statistics on characters of color within children's lit. (See below for graphics and links.) This summer, she arranged the President's Program to focus on the same topic, from the perspective of panelists in higher education and authors of color. (Again, links are below.)
