The Black Studies: An Education for Me + You Bookmobile and Book Fair, presented by United Way of New York City in partnership with the Education Equity Action Plan Coalition (EEAP), returns for its second year for a five-borough tour across New York City. This year, their final, celebratory stop will be at Lincoln Center to provide an immersive learning experience that lifts up the historic San Juan Hill neighborhood, which was home to the largest Black population in New York City in the early 1900s, including trailblazers who made strides in scholarship, music, journalism, and social work. The event will feature live programming, interactive activities, and an incredible book giveaway.

The Black Studies: An Education for Me + You Series is a movement dedicated to ensuring that Black Studies as the Study of the World resonates in every classroom, enriching the education of all students and elevating our entire educational system. The Bookmobile itself is an interactive museum on wheels, where the Black Studies Curriculum comes alive visually with installations that spark curiosity and celebrate diversity. Learn more here
