The Literary Freedom Project is committed to creating spaces that help elevate cultural narratives. Our programs value the variety of histories and cultures found in the Bronx and give educators & residents places to build community and explore social engagement.
One Book One Bronx hosts weekly restorative conversations related to gentrification, social justice, women’s empowerment, criminal justice, and racial inequality while (re)sparking a love of literature.
LFP regularly hosts award-winning writers and poets. Author appearances have included Nicole Dennis-Benn, Willie Perdomo, Angie Cruz, and Tyehimba Jess among many others.
Lesson plans and workshops are designed to show how cultural and social engagement can serve as a connective tool to empower educators to use books and writing in the classroom.
Free books distributed during One Book One Bronx and other community book projects.
2020-21 author appearances: Tyehimba Jess, Esmeralda Santiago, The Last Poets, Angie Cruz and many more.
