$36,000 in Textbooks Heading to Mississippi
Reader To Reader is pleased to announce that Tougaloo College in Tougaloo, Mississippi will be receiving an additional $36,000 worth of the textbook, Basic Mathematics.
The donation is on top of $6,000 worth of Basic Mathematics that were donated this past summer. The brand-new textbooks are being made available for donation by the author, Steve Slavin.
“This book is so good, and has gotten such a response from students and teachers that we want as many copies as we can get,” Prof. Demetria White says. “It’s very detailed and it a very good resource book. We want to thank Reader To Reader and Dr. Slavin for making this donation possible.”
Founded in 1869, Tougaloo College is a private, historically African-American, liberal arts institution, accessible to all persons regardless of race, ethnic origin, religion or creed.
Tougaloo College played a very active role during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. “Tougaloo College’s leadership, courage in opening its campus to the Freedom Riders and other Civil Rights workers and leaders, and its bravery in supporting a movement whose time had come, helped to change the economic, political and social fabric of the state of Mississippi and the nation.”
