Loved spending my morning reading to some kiddos at @NextDoorMil as part of their “Read with Me” volunteer program, along with other members of Wisconsin Black Media Association. @DRoseTV@TonyAtkinsTV@ssimsworldwide@RyanJenkins_TV@Aaron_Maybinpic.twitter.com/1MWFG9kBYj— Shirley Descorbeth (@ShirleyReports) February 10, 2020
