Join Hafta-Ichi to Research the article “14 Antiracist Books for Kids and Teens Recommended by BIPOC Teachers and Librarians”
The 14 books on this list are available on Amazon, or maybe at your local library, but we’ve linked each title below to a Black-owned independent bookstore. Note that they may be backordered due to increased demand following the nationwide protests over the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Tony McDade, as well as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has disproportionately affected Black and brown Americans.
As a former school librarian, I also recommend these booklists from School Library Journal and the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center for further suggestions, as well as these resources from Embrace Race and We Need Diverse Books. (I also want to give a shout-out to Wirecutter staff writer Nancy Redd’s picture book Bedtime Bonnet!)
