Each week online, the Bessie Smith Cultural Center here in Chattanooga features community members reading children’s books - to spur dialogue on race relations.
The digital series is called “Bessie’s Front Porch” - and last week, the center’s own Danny Toney read “Chocolate Me!”, by Taye Diggs.
Watch the entire readings from “Bessie’s Front Porch” on the Facebook page - and YouTube channel - for the Bessie Smith Cultural Center. The next reading appears online at 11 AM on Thursday, October 22nd.
