When their school district refused to integrate after Brown v. Board of Education was decided in 1954, a group of Black mothers and children in Southwest Ohio marched every day for two years demanding admission into the white school. Step by Step, the new children’s book from Ohio Humanities and Daydreamers Press, tells the story of one of the longest sustained demonstrations of the civil rights movement from the eyes of a real-life child marcher.
Daydreamers Press is a small, Black woman owned business with a focus on curating books, media, and related programming, especially for children. Its existence is a part of the legacy of Black storytelling, art, and advocacy for representation and justice. We publish content that highlights perspectives and knowledges of multicultural communities. We honor the work of those Black writers and creators who have come before Daydreamers Press and that of our extraordinary contemporaries.
