Join us as we welcome Lisa Michelle Tucker, local author. She will she reading and discussing her book, Chessie Dentley, Student of the Month.
Chessie Dentley, Student of the Month is a picture book inspired by the life of Chessie Dentley Roberts, who grew up in Elizabeth, New Jersey. When she was less than satisfied with simply sitting back and receiving a second-rate education, Chessie stood up and demanded change. Chessie’s story is a great conversation started about the restrictions in the North that were meant to deter African Americans from having career options.
