Although Black History Month is over, Karee Shea Walker seeks to continue promoting the spirit of community associated with it. Walker launched her children’s book: Be Leaf in August, 2015. Be Leaf is the story of a girl named Marikeyta who lives in a city with her mother. When her mother’s falls ill, she is forced to seek the help of a wise old couple living at the top of the hill who help her in a quest for the Bee Leaf. The story is meant to inspire kids to realize that everything is possible.
