By Shanaci Cook Mocha Moms of North Dallas Chapter President

The Boys Booked On Barbershop (BBOB) is one of our chapter’s biggest annual outreach events. To help promote and improve literacy in the African-American community, the Mocha Moms of North Dallas implants reading nooks in local barbershops/beauty shops for the children to read books as they wait for their hair appointment.

We hope to instill in the youth the importance of reading and to help make reading books fun. Join us on June 6, 2009 from 10am-12pm at “The Fade Shop,” 18900 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, as we launch our reading nook for 2009. There will be door prizes, light snacks provided, a special middle school student reading to the children and a local story teller for entertainment. This is a family event so don’t miss out.
