What is Read Woke?

School Librarian Cicely Lewis launched the ‘Read Woke‘ Challenge at her High School in Meadowcreek, GA, and it has since gained national attention.

Lewis describes Read Woke as “…a feeling. A form of education. A call to action, and our right as lifelong learners. It means arming yourself with knowledge to better protect your rights. Learning about others so you treat people with respect and dignity, no matter their religion, race, creed, or color.”

Books on the Saxton B. Little Library READ WOKE Lists must:

  • Challenge social norms
  • Give voice to the voiceless
  • Provide information about a group that has been disenfranchised
  • Seek to challenge the status quo 
  • Have a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group
