I am still a relatively new librarian going into my fourth year, but I wanted to offer a selection of books I’ve either read to my students regarding race and racism, or have been recommended to me.
Unfortunately I have focused so much on making sure Lila has bilingual books, we do not currently have a lot that have to do with the continuous struggle of the black community. A few of these books I am ordering for my own children, and a few I will also take to my library and read aloud to my students.
I saved these Amazon links through my affiliate network because it was the easiest way from my phone while juggling twins. However, I recommend you read that summary and then make any purchases from a local bookstore. 🙂
Another option is to look into the ebook and audio book resources offered by your local library, or even school library. I found a couple of these as audiobooks through Hoopla, and a couple as ebooks.
