Walter Dean Myers: A Diversity Legacy

Walter Dean Myers died July 1. This is sad news to readers, educators and literacy advocates. His New York Times article, Where Are the People of Color in Children’s Books? continued his rich legacy. A prolific author and moving speaker, he tirelessly promoted the importance of diverse books for our diverse children and young people.

His physical presence and voice will be missed, but his literary voice, an inspiration, live on.
