Coloring for Liberation!

Black Lives Matter

Colored by a young person at the West Philly Families Solidarity March

In recent weeks PCC has been providing childcare at local Town Hall meetings to address police brutality and police murders of Black youth. Most of the children we have been hanging out with are toddlers and elementary school-age kids who like to color. To engage them in the legacy of organizing for Black liberation that their parents are partaking in, we have been bringing coloring book pages related to the Civil Rights Movement and the U.S. abolitionist movement. We are sharing PDFs of them here for anyone else looking for resources like these, just click the links next to each image to view a PDF. Download, copy and share! <3
