Ep. 39: Kayci Ortiz is a biracial (Black/White) young woman from New Jersey and recent Harvard graduate.  She also is a Board Member of Project RACE and former President of Project RACE Teen.  She is an accomplished academic, who was selected as a 2006 Jack Kent Cooke Young Scholar. She has won several national essay contests.  She was awarded the 2009 Princeton Prize in Race Relations, which was created to identify and commend young people who are working to increase understanding and mutual respect among all races. 

As President of Project RACE Teen, Kayci held critical bone marrow donor drives, started a Teen Project RACE panel, created a Facebook page for teens, and was a wonderful asset for Project RACE. She served as president until 2010 when she began college at Harvard University.  She has continued her work with Project RACE as a Board Member.

Ep. 37: Lee & Low Books (https://www.leeandlow.com/) is the largest multicultural children's book publisher in the country. They also are one of the few minority-owned publishing companies in the United States, as well as a throwback to what many publishers used to be: independent, generational businesses in which the people running the company have a personal stake in its success. 

On this episode of the podcast, I speak with Hannah Ehrlich, Director of Marketing and Publicity, for Lee & Low Books about the company's simple and elegant mission: to publish contemporary diverse stories that all children can enjoy. In addition, listen as Hannah describes how Lee & Low is committed to meeting the needs of educators by providing award-winning, diverse books for today’s classrooms, along with the resources educators need to make meaningful use of each book.
