New Picture Book Empowers Families to Uproot Racism in Our Society
New York Times bestselling author and the Founding Director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research, Ibram Kendi has released a children's picture book that "empowers parents and children to uproot racism in our society and in ourselves."
Antiracist Baby was first released as board book on June 16, but quickly sold out and spent its subsequent weeks on back-order. Due to the high demand, the book was re-published July 14 in picture book format with added discussion prompts to help readers recognize and reflect on bias in their daily lives.
