“Bessie’s Front Porch” features community members reading children’s books to spur dialogue on race relations.
The digital series from the Bessie Smith Cultural Center here in Chattanooga debuted last year - and it is back every day online throughout February for Black History Month.
Here’s Judge Curtis Collier reading “Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.” by Doreen Rappaport.
Watch the entire readings from “Bessie’s Front Porch” on the Facebook page - and YouTube channel - for the Bessie Smith Cultural Center.
Also, on Thursday, February 25th - at 6 PM: the Bessie will co-sponsor a Living History virtual class on Black troops in the Civil War.
The Medal of Honor Heritage Center is another co-sponsor.
Details on the virtual class at its website.
