Encouraging youth to read more books and learn about themselves

by Jesse Muhammad

On Saturday, May 16, 2009, I was one of the many guest speakers at Rolling Out Magazine's annual Seeding Minds Children's Literacy event held at the Gregory Lincoln Education Center in Houston.

The purpose of Seeding Minds is to improve the literacy and reading comprehension of all youth.

Children’s authors Keith Davis Jr., Diane King and Carolyn Forsche read from their latest works. Others speakers included Dr. Wendy Johnson and Jonathan Sprinkles.

Thank you to Kim Floyd, Regional Manager of Rolling Out, for inviting us out and for always doing great things for our community.
