OUR WORK: You are super amazing for stopping by and supporting our first British Caribbean Superhero animation. Yayyyy! The Look Like Me Book Challenge C.I.C. works with young budding authors aged 7 - 18 years old to create legacy books for diverse stories in literature. Our Young Ambassadors have requested that they want their number one book 'The Popcorn House' be adapted for television to help perpetuate positive images of Black and Brown characters on the mainstream screen. Have a heart, give generously today, and support their dreams. #changingthenarrative
