A moving event honoring Charnice Milton‘s fourth death anniversary, May 27, 2019, launched the CMCB used book space at Busboys and Poets-Anacostia, 2004 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE. Read about the event at DC Line.
Used books now sell for $5/each or 5/$20. Children’s books, as always, are free of charge. Events designed to foster literacy for all ages and get more books into the hands of area children are planned for both the new space and We Act Radio, 1918 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE, where the project was launched.
In addition, CMCB continues to recommend titles in the new book section of the BBP bookstore.
A highlight of the space is a sculpture, by local artists Mercedes, who crafts healing art from bullet casings and other materials once associated with violence.
