Malike loves teaching children art (its her profession).  Her own art is on exhibit at Sankofa Books, for sale.

Children's storytelling is this Sunday and every Sunday. Happy Nappy Storytelling, our free weekly children's literacy program, excites children about the imaginative and contemplative world of books. Each week we sharpen our reading skills and raise our consciousness through fun and engaging storytelling. 

See you and your little ones soon!
