Pamela On Writing for Children:

“WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS. Children need to see themselves reflected in the books they read. With the Windows and Mirrors concept, the Brown Bookshelf’s mission will fulfill that purpose of reflecting Brown and Black children’s voices back to them and opening up a window for other children to learn, appreciate and value Black voices and stories.”
