Kamala and Maya Harris are tired of looking at the empty courtyard behind their apartment building! Then an amazing idea hits them: they’ll turn it into a playground! Listen and watch this video to hear Meena Harris read from her book, which stars younger versions of her own mom and aunt, and talk about why it’s so important to see powerful girls of color in the stories we read and write.
