A new Netflix series celebrates children’s books written by Black authors.
Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices, which hit Netflix Sept. 1, 2020, highlights children’s books written by Black authors that all touch on the Black experience. Each episode features a different book read aloud by different Black celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o, Common, and Tiffany Haddish to name a few.
The 12-episode series is designed to cultivate young readers, and promote diverse voices in children’s literature—which is exactly the goal of its host, 15-year-old activist Marley Dias. Each episode is about 6 minutes long, making this your go-to bedtime story resource. Adults can find additional books and resources on NetflixBookmarks.com.
