A Kids Book About Systemic Racism
For Ages 6+
Systemic racism is incredibly difficult to understand—even for grownups! This book was made to help kids understand what systemic racism is and how it’s built into laws, schools, stories, and other institutions in a way that collectively makes life much harder for people of color.
Jordan Thierry is a documentary filmmaker, activist, and storyteller. He has worked for over a decade to highlight the stories of people of color and working to undo the ongoing legacy of systemic racism in the U.S.A.
I got this because systemic racism is hard for adults to fully understand and I have a mixed family so I wanted to see how to navigate this conversation with my son. The book itself is fantastic it really breaks down the topic especially for kids. I love that the books are written by different authors. If you’re thinking about ordering from this company. Do it.
Complex themes for complex times and today’s thoughtful children
My son and I enjoyed reading this book together. Systemic racism is such a complex concept that I wasn’t sure what to expect. The book did an excellent job breaking down the issue in a way a child can understand and giving concrete examples of the way our society maintains a system of racism. I highly recommend it.
Great book. I hope that this helps many youth and parents.
This book is a blessing, thank you for writing about this important topic, it made the conversation very easy to start with my little ones!
