Woke (slang): Aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice) —Merriam-Webster

What is Read Woke? It’s a feeling. A form of education. A call to action, and our right as lifelong learners. It means arming yourself with knowledge to better protect your rights. Learning about others so you treat people with respect and dignity, no matter their religion, race, creed, or color. —Cicely Lewis

The Read Woke movement was created by Cicely Lewis, School Library Journal 2020 Librarian of the Year. To be included as suggested titles, the books must:

  • Challenge a social norm
  • Give voice to the voiceless
  • Provide information about a group that has been disenfranchised
  • Seek to challenge the status quo
  • Have a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group

Beginning October 19, register for the challenge on Beanstack and earn badges for reading books written by authors of various marginalized communities. For all ages!
