Nzinga LeJeune, Hampton Alumni, coordinated a group of HBCU students from Howard University to visit KAN Books as the first stop on their Alternative Spring Break journey in Detroit, MI.
Nzinga showed her short film, “Water Injustice”, on the Flint Water Crisis. And provided more context about the film in a Q&A session after showing the film.
About 50 students, professors and chaperones packed the room for the gathering. The students then logged comic books, fiction, urban fiction and agriculture books that had yet to be logged at KAN Books. The young people served the bookstore that serves the North End, providing literacy resources in a neighborhood without a library.
“Howard University pulled up!!! Special thanks to the students who participated in my class today, viewed my Film #waterinjustice, and volunteered at our Detroit co-opperative Book Store KAN BOOKS. #organize #socialjustuce #freetheland #futureleaders#beautifulspirits #blackpower” – Last Picture/Quote Source – Nzinga Lejeune’s Instagram
