Now available: This Book Is Anti-Racist Journal , a guided journal with more than 50 activities to support your anti-racism journey


Who are you? What is racism? Where does it come from? Why does it exist? What can you do to disrupt it? Learn about social identities, the history of racism and resistance against it, and how you can use your anti-racist lens and voice to move the world toward equity and liberation.

"In a racist society, it's not enough to be non-racist--we must be ANTI-RACIST." --Angela Davis

Gain a deeper understanding of your anti-racist self as you progress through 20 chapters that spark introspection, reveal the origins of racism that we are still experiencing , and give you the courage and power to undo it . Each chapter builds on the previous one as you learn more about yourself and racial oppression. 20 activities get you thinking and help you grow with the knowledge. All you need is a pen and paper.

Author Tiffany Jewell, an anti-bias, anti-racist educator and activist, builds solidarity beginning with the language she chooses--using gender neutral words to honor everyone who reads the book. Illustrator Aurélia Durand brings the stories and characters to life with kaleidoscopic vibrancy.

After examining the concepts of social identity, race, ethnicity, and racism , learn about some of the ways people of different races have been oppressed , from indigenous Americans and Australians being sent to boarding school to be "civilized" to a generation of Caribbean immigrants once welcomed to the UK being threatened with deportation by strict immigration laws.

Find hope in stories of strength, love, joy, and revolution that are part of our history, too, with such figures as the former slave Toussaint Louverture, who led a rebellion against white planters that eventually led to Haiti's independence, and Yuri Kochiyama, who, after spending time in an internment camp for Japanese Americans during WWII, dedicated her life to supporting political prisoners and advocating reparations for those wrongfully interned.

Learn language and phrases to interrupt and disrupt racism . So, when you hear a microaggression or racial slur, you'll know how to act next time.

This book is written for EVERYONE who lives in this racialized society --including the young person who doesn't know how to speak up to the racist adults in their life, the kid who has lost themself at times trying to fit into the dominant culture, the children who have been harmed (physically and emotionally) because no one stood up for them or they couldn't stand up for themselves, and also for their families, teachers, and administrators.

With this book, be empowered to actively defy racism and xenophobia to create a community (large and small) that truly honors everyone.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "How does one relate the complexities of racism to young people? In her debut nonfiction title, Jewell gives tweens and teens the background information and language to understand how racism was created, how it continues to work, and why it's important to fight against it. The author begins with a thorough overview of identity, intersectionality, privilege, ethnicity, and other concepts necessary to recognize the dominant culture and those who have been marginalized. Accompanied by vibrant digital artwork featuring real and imagined people of color, the short, dense chapters continue with descriptions of key individuals and events in racist history from around the world and culminate with myriad strategies to take action against racism, both individually and in solidarity with others. Throughout the primer, Jewell interjects insight from her own life as a biracial cisgender woman and offers related, thought-provoking activities. Although geared for YA readers, adult collaboration may be necessary to help unpack the volume of information and some of its difficult issues, as well as provide context for select activities.--Angela Leeper Copyright 2020 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Using clear, compelling language, Jewell employs four sections to deftly explain progressive understandings of identity, history, action, and solidarity as tools to encourage antiracist reflection, thought, and action. From the author's note introducing the idea that "racism is a problem, a very serious problem," to the volume's explorations of "spending that privilege" and "calling out and calling in," Jewell offers readers at various points in their activist journeys a necessary primer on antiracist thinking (a glossary helpfully defines underlined terms used throughout, including cisgender, neurodiverse, and femme). Thoughtful, energizing calls to action and journal prompts encourage readers to check in with themselves and to "grow from our discomfort." Durand's stylish illustrations punctuate the text-heavy pages; robust supplemental materials, including notes on the text and suggested reading, point toward ongoing learning. Ages 11--15. (Jan.)"
