Join author Gloria Respress-Churchwell as she reads from her new picture book, Follow Chester!, a story about Dr. Chester Pierce, the first black college football player to compete south of the Mason-Dixon line. This historical fiction picture book frames a turbulent time in the civil rights era with the clever use of a football play to show race relations and teamwork.
