  • Interest Level: Grade 4 - Grade 9
  • Reading Level: Grade 5

For some kids, ways they can help eliminate racial injustice might be hard to see.

After all, they are taught that people in society are all equal under the law. So why then does racial conflict still exist? And what can they as individuals do about it right now?

One way is for white children to understand the unearned advantages they were born with based solely on the color of their skin. This concept is called white privilege and this book will help children of all races understand it, see how it affects them and find ways to speak out and take real action against it.
