Author Walter Dean Myers speaks very candidly about the lack of people of color in children's books today in a New York Times article. With so many advancements that have been made in society, our image is not represented in literature. Is it because there are a lack of African-American writers? Interest about the African-American community as a whole? Could it be there is a quiet effort to prevent our story from being told and preserved in print for generations to come? You be the judge after reading this article from this prolific author.
