Our three-step program explained
Our nonprofit has a three-step program to combat illiteracy in the community and to create diversity in children's fiction.
TO CREATE AND PUBLISH CHILDREN'S BOOKS: By publishing our own books, we are putting other publishing companies on notice that diversity matters. Our artists and authors are real people in real communities, therefore we do not endorse the stereotypical roles for people of color. Lastly, these books will be sold at retail stores and online with the premise that for every book sold, another can be given out for free to those in need.
TO DEVELOP LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS FOR KIDS: Benny's Books THATS! Leadership Program begins in the Summer of 2019 (Ages 11-12) with four main focuses: (1) Leadership, (2) Creative Writing, (3) Art, and (4) Physical Fitness. These pillars create a solid foundation for children in their formative years that will have a lasting impact.
TO GIVE EMERGING ARTISTS AND AUTHORS A PLATFORM: We will work closely with artists and authors looking to create diversity that have an authentic story to tell. Whether its through publication, gallery showings, or other avenues; we will increase the scope for emerging artists and authors.
