The 2022 tour has been a success with the help of sponsors and partnerships. Livvy Zoe, Big Circle Music Group, the Black Author Matter Tour, US Artificial Intelligence Institute, BeanPath, Kittlabs, and other community partners have helped to make this possible. By working together, we have been able to create an experience that is not only educational but entertaining as well. We are proud to be able to provide this opportunity to our community and look forward to continuing to grow and expand our reach in 2023.
Though Houston will be the last stop for the 2022 tour, like the cities before it, it will be a day children will not soon forget. As school is beginning for many students, it is the perfect opportunity for parents to connect with others who share their commitment to promoting literacy among our youth. Parents play a critical role in their children's education, and promoting literacy is a key part of that. No better way to kick off a school year than with kid red carpet fun!
