In the spirit of the Black History Month, The 100 Black Men of Savannah and our Collegiate Chapters will give away 100 free children book and other items during a drive-through event. This event is scheduled to occur on Friday, February 19th, 5 pm – 7 pm at Sanctuary of Praise Christian Assembly located at 5212 Silk Hope Rd, Savannah, GA 31405. The Georgia youth author 11-year-old Trinity Pace will be present during the event to speak about her published piece and how the COVID 19 era has affected her.
“Black History Month is every month for the 100 Black Men of Savannah”, says Torian Jackson Mackey, Executive Director of the 100 Black Men of Savannah. “Mentoring young people and helping them understand current events and their history can only aid in making our community stronger.”
The 100 Black Men of Savannah was able to partner with Los Angles based Noah publishing to secure 100 children’s books entitled “Kids Journal Through COVID-19: United Kids Speak.” The publisher Laval Belle denoted the following about the book: Fifty young kindred spirits representing fifty U.S. states have written essays combined to create a very compelling book entitled Kids Journal Through COVID-19. Strong support for this effort is being provided by Sanctuary of Praise Christian Assembly and the members of our local Collegiate 100 Chapters.
