On Saturday, April 22, 2017, The Black Star Project practiced reading with our youth, and we taught our young boys and girls to have pride in their community, take control of the cleaning of their community and to become responsible for the physical appearance of their community. Partners in Red, Black, Clean and Green include The Black Star Project, the Chicago Justice Or Else Committee and the Campaign Against Filth and Fear.
