Reggie Wakes Up (paperback)
Product DescriptionBy Zekita...with Richard James....Illustrations by Matthew D. Schultz
The author explores the life of African American children in the classroom. This creative and explicitly honest tale of classroom discussion and learning by way of living experience explores the benefits of taking education and economic competitiveness seriously even at an early age. This story explores the atrocious stereotyping of African American successes as being via sports, television entertainment, and music; rather than in community, business, medicine, education, real estate, etc. and how it affects the way that our children view themselves and those who share their community.
