Join us for a special program with Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow, author of Your Name Is a Song! Jamilah will present about her book and invite NYPL librarians for a Q&A to discuss her inspirations for the book and what it’s like to be an author! WATCH HERE!

This event is part of the Woodson Project—a series of events, posts, and book lists on subjects including empowering Black families, amplifying Black voices, exploring Black identity and intersectionality, and discovering Black influencers in STEAM. The project was created by branch staff from across NYPL to honor Dr. Carter G. Woodson, who in 1926 created Negro History Week—the precursor to Black History Month.
