Our Mission

BooksFromBekkah, Inc. takes pride in its commitment to impacting the future of college-bound African American leaders at a very critical, often overlooked, point in their lives: the transition from high school to college.  

Easing that transition is a top priority to BooksFromBekkah, Inc. because too known throughout St. Louis' black community is the "freshman college-dropout" phenomena—where roots primarily stem from distractions in studies created by financial disparities and lack of support systems post-entry to college.

Our goal is to increase adherence in our scholarship recipients’ academic careers, in order to ultimately produce an army of passion-driven, philanthropic St. Louis leaders.  How will BooksFromBekkah, Inc. accomplish this? By filling voids and breaking chains: First, through awarding scholarships that cover the universally known, unexpectedly steep, required textbook expenses.

Our Impact

To date since its erection on the founder’s 24th birthday on April 13, 2016, BooksFromBekkah, Inc. has impacted six extraordinarily phenomenal, college-bound, African American seniors during their final spring semester of high school by means of $500.00 individual scholarships.  By April 2018, the hope is to raise $5,000 to send 10 scholars to college with textbook cushions.

I envision BooksFromBekkah Inc. to become a household-, school-, and citywide-known crutch of Saint Louis that eventually spreads it’s scope nationwide. We aim to break the alarming phenomena of freshman African American college-dropouts in its roots: students’ pockets.
— Dr. Rebakkah J. Johnson, BooksFromBekkah Inc. President/CEO
