Instagram

Kaia Gerber is proving that beauty is just as important on the inside.

The fashion model, Kai Gerber, may walk the runways in the name of fashion; however, she is letting the world know her beauty isn’t just skin deep. The 18-year-old is also known for her book club and has been promoting educational must-reads on racial injustice.

The star has been taking to social media to keep fans in her literature loop. She posted to her Instagram June 11, 2020, that the following book club would be lead by writer Glory Edim, founder of Well-Read Black Girl, a book club exclusively for Black women. “I am so inspired by Glory’s work in reiterating the importance of having diverse voices present in literature, she’ll be talking about the book and her book club that supports black writers, women, and non-binary writers,” reads part of the post caption.

Gerber has been supporting the Black Lives Matter movement in various other social media posts making her activism known.

this week has been heartbreaking for so many reasons. but none of this is new. the racism and brutality in this country has been going on for way too long – and it has NEVER been okay. it is not enough to just disapprove of the discrimination going on. we have to demand justice and equality, and actively seek out ways to help. start conversations with your friends and educate yourselves on these issues. sign the petitions and join me in donating to places like @colorofchange, @aclu_nationwide, @grassrootslaw, and @blklivesmatter that are actively fighting for progress. i’m postponing book club this week so we can focus on the tragedy that is going on in america right now. this is a really crucial time and everyone — especially young people, need to stay informed and do their part to create change, and spread love. “that’s not a chip on my shoulder. that’s your foot on my neck” – malcolm x #georgefloyd NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE.
