Teaching for Change developed SocialJusticeBooks.org to help families and educators identify the best multicultural and social justice children’s books. We examine the representation, the story line, and the quality of writing of each book.
Traffic to our website exploded this year, thanks in part to Beverly Daniel Tatum, author of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?, who mentioned our site on the CNN Sesame Street Town Hall “Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism.” Your year-end gift will allow us to build on that momentum.
In 2020 we:
- Added new booklists on hair, gentrification and housing, healthcare, media, and policing and added many titles to our other booklists. We also added a collection of booklists relevant to Black Lives Matter at School.
- Added 40 new book reviews.
- Launched the Freedom Reads: Anti-Bias Book Talk series to share how we select high-quality, anti-bias books so that parents and teachers can do the same.
We rely on support from individuals like you to make this work possible. Please donate today.
