Readers Make Leaders: Imani Henry’s Inspiring Story

As a young child, Imani would memorize books before classes. In second grade the books became longer and harder to completely memorize. This is when Imani was diagnosed with a vision issue. Lucky for her, she has a loving big brother and father who would reenact and read books to her. This inspired the young girl to start a program for kids that were having difficulty reading.

 

100 Men Reading

 

In 2010, 10-year old Imani Henry wanted to promote reading and literacy development to young children in Delaware.  She created the 100 Men Reading with the goal of having local men go into classrooms to read to children in preschool through 3rd grade. Through this program, she also gives free books to local children.

 

With her work, she has been recognizing as one of CNN’s Young Heros. Watch the video below to learn more about Imani and the 100 Men Reading Campaign.

 

 

Meet Imani and learn how to get involved at the 16th annual Education and Literacy Festival this Saturday at the Police League of Wilmington from noon to 4 pm!
