Dads Read: I Am Black History!
Sponsored by The Friends of the Marina Library. Join us as we celebrate Black history! One month isn’t enough time to explore the wide range of stories that exist but we intend to try.
At the beginning of the The Friends of the Marina Library's Little Kids Block Party (starts at 10am and ends at 11:30am) local dad, Lloyd Foster from Families of Color Monterey County and Dads of Monterey County will be reading a few specially selected children's books celebrating Black history. Lloyd Foster was born and raised in Seaside and has been married to his wife, Lisa for 14 years. Together they raise two grown children, Laythen (20) and Lethaniel (19). Lloyd enjoys reading to kids because it "takes them on an adventure". His own children would ask for him to read to them more because it sparked their creative side. For Lloyd and his family, Black history is a remembrance of struggles and achievements. It is a reminder about where we have been and where we are now.
