Cheryl Woodruff Brooks releases her very first children's book, which is an interpretation of her debut book, Chicken Bone Beach: A Pictorial History of Atlantic City's Missouri Avenue Beach. Cheryl wanted to introduce a new generation of children to the story about a once-segregated beach in New Jersey that was a hub of activity.
