Stacy S, Nunn
Library Media Specialist @Baltimore County Public Schools

Stacey is currently a Library Media Specialist for Baltimore County Public Schools. She is a member of the American Library Association (ALA), American Association of School Librarians (AASL), Maryland Association of School Librarians (MASL) and Black Caucus American Library Association (BCALA).

Clothilde, Ewing
Author, Journalist and Producer
Clothilde Ewing has spent her career communicating through journalism as an assignment editor and producer at CBS News, in entertainment as a producer at The Oprah Winfrey Show, through politics as a member of the press team for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, and with nonprofits, where she currently serves as Vice President of Strategic Communications at The Chicago Community Trust. She never had any intention of becoming an author, but was inspired to do so, after reading a New York Times opinion piece by her now-editor, Denene Millner, titled: “Black Kids Don’t Want to Read About Harriet Tubman All the Time.” Her goal is for children, whether they look like hers or not, to see children of color in books that have nothing to do with race or struggle and have everything to do with belonging and joy. Making sure this happened became her calling.
