Kee’Miyah & The Boxoplentys
With our support, award-winning artist Stacy Innerst illustrated 8-year-old Kee’Miyah West, a resident of the southwestern Pennsylvania community of North Braddock, where more than half of children live in poverty. To cope, Kee’Miyah has created an assortment of fictional characters, including Bill and Betty Boxoplenty, members of a fictitious seven-person family living in Virginia.
