READing and writing become popular norms in the Black community, when we present culturally relevant literary materials and activity. We RESTORE value and integrity, with rich literary experiences, to neighborhoods currently pigeon-holed as "violent" environments. We galvanize literacy organizations, while RENEWing the Black Literary Marketplace for Chicago's newly identified 400+ Black writers, who tell their stories without bias and for proper representation of Black culture.
