Tell the Children the Truth
$7.99

"Children as young as three years old are aware of race and skin color, and they aren't afraid to ask questions," says Caryn Park, a professor at Antioch University in Seattle, whose research focuses on children's understanding of race and ethnicity. "Their identities really matter to them, and racial identity is a significant part of their total identity. They also understand the power in talking about race and racism, and that when they bring those things up, they can get the attention of grown-ups and other children."


Contrarily to popular beliefs, the discussion about racism and discrimination needs to happen as soon as possible, if we want to raise our children to be kind, respectful, and antiracist.


What is the best way to stimulate a discussion, if not by telling a compelling tale? Nothing is more powerful than a story.


This book introduces the concepts of diversity, race, and discrimination in a carefully constructed way for each developmental stage of the children, from 0 to 12 years of age.

Every story is written for children at a different age, so that it may accompany you through the years in understanding and cherishing our differences.


This is a great tool for both parents and educators who want to teach children the beauty of ethnic diversity and the importance of fighting for what is right.


Embark on a journey with your children towards tolerance, respect, and understanding of our history and our struggles.

The New Jim Crow

The New Jim Crow
$24.99
Once in a great while a book comes along that changes the way we see the world and helps to fuel a nationwide social movement. The New Jim Crow is such a book. Praised by Harvard Law professor Lani Guinier as "brave and bold," this book directly challenges the notion that the election of Barack Obama signals a new era of colorblindness. With dazzling candor, legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues that "we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it." By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control--relegating millions to a permanent second-class status--even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness. In the words of Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, this book is a "call to action."

Called "stunning" by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David Levering Lewis, "invaluable" by the Daily Kos, "explosive" by Kirkus, and "profoundly necessary" by the Miami Herald, this updated and revised paperback edition of The New Jim Crow, now with a foreword by Cornel West, is a must-read for all people of conscience.
