In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, over 2,000 second and third grade students from San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) received a copy of the book What If We Were All The Same! by C.M. Harris as part of the 49ers Read for Justice program. The books, which were purchased by the 49ers from the Multicultural Bookstore, in Richmond, California, demonstrate the importance of diversity and unity. The program aims to encourage literacy and educate children about diversity, equity and inclusion at an early age while supporting black-owned businesses and authors of color.
