Tap In receives Coretta Scott King

Tap In Leadership Academy, one of Mix IT Up!’s community partners, was recently honored by the American Library Association with a Coretta Scott King Book Awards Donation Grant.  Tap In was one of three organizations across the country to receive the grant, which includes 100 award-nominated books by African American authors.  This includes the 2012 winners of the award, Kadir Nelson’s Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans, Shane Evans’ Underground: Finding the Light to Freedom, Eloise Greenfield’s The Great Migration: Journey to the North, and Patricia McKissack’s Never Forgotten.  Tap In is super excited about this addition of 100 great, culturally relevant books to its growing library!
