Thomishia Booker launched Hey Carter! Books after being disappointed in the lack of representation of Black boys in children’s books. Her brand and books are inspired by her son, Carter, and focused on building self-identity in young Black boys. She has set a clear vision to curate an animated series filled with “Happy Black children loving their happy Black Lives!”
In September 2020, Booker was the only self-published author to strike and negotiate and deal with Netflix for their original series, Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices featuring Jill Scott, Common, and Tiffany Haddish.
This March, we’re focusing on renewal, rebirth, and rejuvenation just in time for Spring! We’ll be discussing Thomishia’s journey to becoming a self-published author and how her books encourage readers to see Black boys as beautiful, innocent, and loving children + a Live Q&A so get your questions ready as well!
