Sidney Keys was recently featured on Good Morning America for creating a book club for African American boys, and for being one of Marvel’s newest real life superheroes on the Disney+ show Marvel’s Hero Project. Sidney’s journey began when Ty’s book Danny Dollar Millionaire Extraordinaire inspired him to start the Books N Bros book club.
Ty had the honor of speaking about the great importance of Sidney’s work on the Marvel’s Hero Project episode.
“I give so much respect to those young boys who’ve joined this club and being part of, honestly, a revolution,” says Ty in the segment. “[Sidney is] showing children of color that not only is it okay to read, and it’s necessary to read, it’s fun to read.”
