Children's publishers want black characters; more on fundraisers for independent bookstores during COVID

Recently some media outlets (I think it was Good Morning America) mentioned that publishers were looking for children’s books specifically with role model black characters  (see June 13, 2020 posting also).

This is not my own forte but Heathline Parenthood has some suggestions for consumers, here

Another topic worth noting is that independent community bookstores have been doing crowdfunding fundraisers to stay afloat during shutdowns.  There is a comprehensive article from Publisher’s Weekly last April. 

Bonfire has a typical fundraiser selling merchandise.
