A REVOLUTIONARY SUMMER

A SUMMER OF I LOVE YOUS

Our final summer session welcomed American Book Award winner Susan Muaddi Darraj. She helped our revolutionary daughters see the connection between the Palestinian and African American struggles. She exposed them to a love story that ended beautifully. She let them know just how important Black writing has been to other marginalized groups. And she signed their books! Thank you, Susan!

A Revolutionary Summer sincerely thanks all of its donors for their generous support. Because of you, A Revolutionary Summer is going to rock! We still have some slots to fill, though. And we'd love to welcome a few more daughters. Please, if you know a girl 15-19 years of age who will benefit from a summer of intensive reading and writing, and would like to publish and perform her own original creative work, please direct her to www.arevolutionarysummer.com!

"Because of A Revolutionary Summer, I have gained a better appreciation for who I am and where I come from. In spite of what society tells us, I've learned to love me and the skin that I'm in. It was an unforgettable experience and taught me more than I could ever explain." -Amari, A Revolutionary Daughter, 2015
