Talking to kids about race, history, activism, and other topics can be difficult, but take heart in that you are not alone in this journey. There’s plenty of educators and parents that have had to carry out these conversations and have found books and other social justice resources to help them.
Here’s a few sites that highlight diversity, social justice, activism, and more.
Social Justice Books
This website has more than 60 lists of multicultural and social justice books. Depending on the topic of the list and what materials are available, the list will use some or all of the following categories:
- Early Childhood
- Elementary School
- Middle School
- High School / Adult
- Organization & Articles
This website is a great social justice resource since it has books for all ages in one spot! You can get book ideas for little ones, teenagers, or adults.
Multicultural Children’s Book Day
Though this website itself does not have tons of social justice resources, it does provide links to other book websites that talk about and cover diverse reads. However, every year, they do a great job in collaborating with authors, illustrators, bloggers, book reviewers, and more to talk about new diverse reads during Multicultural Children’s Book Day (last Friday of January).
Talking About Race
This website was developed by the National Museum of African American History & Culture, and it does a great job in providing material for so many different topics.
My favorite part is that they provide an audience choice, so you can pick if you are a parent, educator, or someone committed to equity so then the content is tailored a bit more to situations that might come up for that audience. There’s also the choice to explore topics, if you would prefer that.
There’s so many sites that want to help with social justice. These are just a few of them. I will share new websites or resources as I come across them.
