El’s Mirror: Celebrating the Black Family

Gather the family in the comfort of your home to enjoy virtual storytimes and demonstrations of hands-on activities for kids of all ages.

Join us for a special Black History Month program with The George Washington Carver Museum. Follow along as we read El’s Mirror by Austin-based authors Ellison and Bavu Blakes. In the story, a young boy, El, faces challenges and learns how to rise above them by reflecting on the people who inspire him. Who inspires you? Who shares your same hobbies and interests? Imagine these inspirational people standing next to you in a mirror as you draw them using the mirror template available in our materials list. Hang your mirror where you can see it daily, always keeping these inspirational people close to your heart.

Program is FREE to the public.
