This organization is committed to teaching children to read and become aware of historic people in a way they may understand. They donate books to schools and are very active in the community writing about topics such as The Tuskegee Airman, Paul L Dunbar and others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would they broaden their subject matter to a national level. The books are well done .

I've had the opportunity to work with HBA and I think the books are very informative and serve as a positive in teaching history to our children. HBA books could serve as a supplement in our educational system.

I have sponsored the books created by Home Based Arts in our local school district. The teachers who used them were thrilled to have educational, fun books to teach local history.

Home Based Arts is a wonderful concept benefiting the youth. There emphasis is on teaching kids an array of historical subjects through learning activity books. I think that this is a outstanding way to get kids excited about learning. The content of the books are of the highest degree. The writing, art, structure, are done in a masterfull way. I recently spoke with the executive director Joyce Kasprzak at second street market in Dayton Ohio. People like this with so much passion for the underprivleged youth really makes me want to do my part. This organization donates these books to classrooms who don't have the funds to purchase them. We need more non profits like this. Please check them out at www.homebasedarts.org

About 15 years ago a co-worker and friend, Toni Bell shared one of the Home Based Arts Books with me, supporting her husband William Bell. I found them to be an excellent way for me to teach my Son's about their community and the Dayton area as well as, share them with my Grandchildren who lived in Virginia. The collection reminded me of the Black History Books my Mother taught me from. Facts about positive people and history from where we live and about people we see every day. In this world of video games, cell phones and activities that don't require human interaction, it's very important to me to keep the children close. I hold them and read to them. I encourage them to color pictures and read to me. These books will always be a tradition in my Family as I encourage unity in learning and spending quality time with our children.
