MAYCI seeks to engage children of the African Diaspora through literary devices in an effort to heighten their cultural and literary aptitude. To effectively accomplish such a feat, MAYCI will present literary material to youth at their most impressionable ages that raises their cultural awareness. MAYCI is partnering with author, James Wilson, Jr. to supply students at select schools throughout the country of Brazil with a copy of his book, Ensina-Me Sobre Garvey.
In an effort to complement the linguistic diversity of children throughout the African diaspora, James Wilson, Jr. had his original work, Teach Me About Garvey translated into Portuguese to neutralize the language barrier so that children throughout the Portuguese-speaking African world could know about Marcus Garvey and his vision for them!
Ensina-Me Sobre Garvey is an introduction to the legacy of the honorable Marcus Garvey, one of the greatest world leaders of the 20th century. Garvey brought hope, dignity, and purpose to African people around the world in one of their greatest times of need. Ensina-Me Sobre Garvey highlights the achievements and vision of Marcus Garvey. This book will expand every reader's knowledge base and accelerate their reading level. Ensina-Me Sobre Garvey instills ethnic identity, honor and obligation within every child.
MAYCI’s African Diaspora Literary Project seeks to raise $800 in funds through donations in order to sponsor every student at the following schools with a copy of Ensina-Me Sobre Garvey!
1. Escolinha Maria Felipa - Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
