About the Book

From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of This Book Is Anti-Racist, Tiffany Jewell, with art by Eisner-nominated illustrator Nicole Miles, The Antiracist Kid is the essential illustrated chapter book guide to antiracism for empowering the young readers in your life!

What is racism? What is antiracism? Why are both important to learn about? In this book, systemic racism and the antiracist tools to fight it are easily accessible to the youngest readers.

In three sections, this must-have guide explains:

  • Identity: What it is and how it applies to you
  • Justice: What it is, what racism has to do with it, and how to address injustice
  • Activism: A how-to with resources to be the best antiracist kid you can be

This book teaches younger children the words, language, and methods to recognize racism and injustice—and what to do when they encounter it at home, at school, and in the media they watch, play, and read.

Critical Praise

“Incorporates age-appropriate language in rendering complex topics—such as privilege, intersectionality, and colonization—with clarity and precision, aided by buoyant graphics depicting a diverse group of children. The lessons highlight youth agency, awareness, and autonomy… Adults might just learn something, too.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Tiffany Jewell’s work is one of the most powerful tools in [my toolbox].... Jewell helps children acquire language and lenses to talk about, recognize, and analyze race and racism in their daily lives. THE liberatory tool every child, caregiver, and educator needs to help create an antiracist future." — Sonja Cherry-Paul, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Stamped (For Kids)

“Colorful illustrations, hand-lettered quotes, examples, thought questions, vocabulary sidebars and clear explanations, this book breaks down the nuances and complexities of anti-racism for young readers.... An essential book for every home and classroom library, and I cannot wait to dive into this with my own kids!” — Joanna Ho, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eyes That Kiss in the Corners

"We often meet people who say they are interested in becoming anti-racists and others who are seeking information that can help them understand the most challenging issue facing our country: systemic racism.... Timely and an essential primer not only for young readers, but for all of us." — Wade Hudson and Cheryl Willis Hudson, editors of the New York Times Best Children’s Book of the Year The Talk: Conversations about Race, Love, and Truth
