Summary

Looks at issues surrounding race and racism.

An important and timely book on race and racism, encouraging children to think for themselves about the issues involved.

Talking about race is often discouraged, but this book aims to bring everyone into the conversation. It explores the history of race and society and discusses how racist attitudes come into being. Look at belonging and identity, the damaging effects of stereotyping and the benefits of positive representation. Discover why it's important to identify and challenge racist behaviour, wherever it exists.

NOTE : Contains a number of uses of the word "f-ing."

Contains a number of racial slurs, in the context of people recounting their experiences
