The collaboration between @mattdelapena and Christian Robinson is magic! Can’t wait to hear about the process for their latest work “Milo Imagines the World!” #ALAMW21 @UELMA_Utah pic.twitter.com/9Y92Cp1Y40

“Keep your eye on the prize…stay United.” Ruby Bridges has me in tears!! She was 6 y/o when she was the 1st student to desegregate an all-white school in Louisiana in 1960. I taught her story back when I was a classroom teacher…such an honor to hear her speak today! #ALAMW21 pic.twitter.com/BmWyMxEfIw
