Broadway’s ‘Mean Girls’ Is Supporting Black Lives Matter in a Creative Way
Mean Girls on Broadway has launched a new project in support of Black Lives Matter that we all need to tune into.
The Broadway musical took to their social media this past week to share that they will be starting a summer book club. The program will be a series of readings that focus on the fight against racial injustice, followed by detailed discussions. The book club will encourage followers to join the cast in educating themselves further through the books chosen.
We’re launching our new Summer Reading & Discussion Series! Throughout the summer, we’ll select books that focus on the ongoing fight for racial justice in America. We’re kicking it off with Angie Thomas’s “The Hate U Give.” Learn more: https://t.co/zU3n9q3bpy #MeanGirlsBway pic.twitter.com/CeipediQtH
