31 Children's books to support conversations on race, racism and resistance

There has been a lot happening in the news recently. It is hitting very close to home, not just geographically, but personally too. We know it is a very difficult topic to discuss with our children. At the library, we firmly believe that books can help. Here is a list of books that can help you discuss racial justice with your kids. If you would like to reserve any of these books, you may do so at http://catalog.shelbycounty-al.org/POLARIS/ or call as at the library. We are happy to recommend other titles as well.

Curbside pickup began June 1st.

Beyond addressing issues of race and racism, this children’s reading list focuses on taking action. It highlights resistance, resilience and activism; and seeks to empower youth to participate in the ongoing movement for racial justice.
