Author and Speaker Chris Singleton Returns with His New Release: Your Life Matters
March 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
We’re so excited to announce that speaker Chris Singleton, author of the already wildly popular Different, will be at Main Street Reads on March 20th to celebrate and discuss his newest book releasing in March, Your Life Matters.
Empowering and validating, Your Life Matters teaches children of all races about Black History and reassures black children everywhere that no matter what they hear no matter what they experience, no matter what they’re told, their lives matter. Written by national speaker Chris Singleton, who lost his own mother in the 2015 Charleston church shooting, Your Life Matters teaches kids to stand tall in the face of racial adversity and fight for the life they dream of.
Each page depicts a famous hero from Black history mentoring a child of today and encouraging them to use their mind, heart, voice, and hands in that fight. Hero-mentors in the book include Maya Angelou, Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Aretha Franklin, Katherine Johnson, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Mary McLeod Bethune, George Washington Carver, and others.
Don’t miss the chance to meet this local icon, hear his words of wisdom and inspiration, and get signed keepsake copies of his books!
