Malden Reads is proud to co-sponsor Malden's 3rd annual Juneteenth event!

Malden Community Organizing for Racial Equity has arranged for wonderful speakers and a proclamation read by City of Malden Mayor Gary Christenson.

In light of recent news, events like Malden Juneteenth are more important than ever in our community showing solidarity and standing together. We are proud to have selected books like The Hate U Give and The Story of Ruby Bridges. We remember this statement from Angie Thomas, the author of The Hate U Give:

“I look at books as being a form of activism because a lot of times they’ll show us a side of the world that we may not have known about.”

Watch the video for some amazing contributions, poems and music that really captured the Heart and Spirit of the Malden Juneteenth Event!
