A book for young people of all races, giving them the language to understand personal and systemic racism, stand up to the adults in their lives, and grow into confident, self-aware people who know their history and can identify and confront prejudice and discrimination. Carefully and colorfully illustrated, includes primers on concepts from colonization to microaggressions, and action plans for what to do when you witness racial harrassment or hear someone make a racist joke. Exercises involve writing your personal history and the history of your community in regards to race, figuring out how to handle mistakes and keep learning, and determining your personal values and boundaries. Accessible without ever talking down.
