Black Books Matter UK seeks new Trustee
Black Books Matter champions diversity in books and stories that represent, are written by and educate on the lives of people of colour. Through providing books, community projects and workshops into homes, communities and schools we strive to educate and inspire young people of all backgrounds to accept and amplify diversity.
Books have the ability to inspire young people while educating, enlightening readers about their history or for others truths they don’t live. They also are able to share positive stories of those they may not see of both themselves and others regularly in mainstream society. This is why we believe Black Books Matter is an important way to educate and inspire young people of all backgrounds. Our aim is to ensure every young person feels unique while creating open minds, tolerance for others and growth; so young people can be accepting and proud of the diverse world we live in and feel their voice is heard.
We currently have received funding to go ahead with our launch in April and go ahead with our 2021-2022 programme.
As we continue to grow we are looking for a diverse range of trustees from diverse background who can contribute to the management of Black Books Matter UK.
It would be wonderful to have a range of trustees would have experience and knowledge of one of the key areas of expertise; finance, fundraising, charity law. Our trustees most importantly need to be passionate abut our charities purpose and mission, and a love for books is always a plus!
