Children's Books about Racism

Stories have the power of helping us relate to people with different experiences than ours. Reading both fiction and non-fiction can be a very effective way for all of us, including children, to put ourselves in someone else's shoes. Here are some booklists of recommended reads addressing racism.

Your local library might have many of these books. If you want to buy, consider supporting a black-owned independent bookstore.
