Blackbird Literacy supported literacy for personal enjoyment and civic engagement for all Detroiters. We did this by giving reading-level and culturally appropriate books to Detroit residents, families, educators, youth, and literacy programs. We believe literacy is foundational to the health and well-being of Detroit’s present and future. When someone can read, the possibilities for what they can accomplish are infinite.

We started in late 2016, with a book drive for Osborn High School.

Our program ended at the end of 2019.

Thank you for supporting our work.
