My Students

Our elementary school has a high percent of English language learners who come from low social economic backgrounds. Over 90% of the students in my school community qualify for free or reduced-price.

At our school, the students do not have access to a variety of anti-racism reading books appropriate for children in the classroom to help the students become more kind, caring, and empathetic towards others.

The students are curious about things, passionate, engaged and active learners.

It is important to acknowledge and name race and racism with children as early and as often as possible. Children's books are one of the most effective and practical tools for initiating these critical conversations, and can also be used to model what it means to resist and dismantle oppression. Addressing issues of race and racism is important.

My Project

It is important to acknowledge and name race and racism with children as early and as often as possible. Addressing issues of race and racism is important but the importance of taking action is equally as important. It is the duty of educators to expose students to the systemic inequities that face Black and Indigenous People of Color.

Children's books are one of the most effective and practical tools for initiating these critical conversations, and can also be used to model what it means to resist and dismantle oppression.

These books will be used to teach lessons online to the students. They highlight resistance, resilience, and activism and seek to empower youth to participate in the ongoing movement for racial justice. Children not only need to know what individual, institutional, and internalized racism looks like, they need to know what they can do about it.

These books show the many ways people of all ages and race have worked to disrupt racism and highlight how race intersects with other issues, such as capitalism, class, colorism, and colonization. These stories often go untold. It is essential to expose students to this racial injustice.
