The Village Project's Emanyatta Program

Akira's Book Club and Wordsmith Jr work closely with programs to support positive self esteem and literacy. We are proud to be active collaborators with the Emanyatta program. This is a Saturday school for young children based in Seaside, CA, under the umbrella of the Village Project, Inc. Emanyatta provides young Black children information and experiences about Africa, our history and current situations of African Americans. Each session includes a 'read loud / read proud' component in which our books are featured. These videos captures the Emanyatta experience and showcases the students, staff, volunteers and speakers that make it such a unique and successful program.
