Micah Reed emerged from The Brickhouse gallery on Sunday thumbing through a children’s copy of “The Lion King,” one with a yellow stuffed lion attached to the cover. The contented 2-year-old was one of hundreds of African American children who left the second annual Sacramento Black Book Fair with a free book over the weekend.
