*A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*
'One of the pre-eminent intellectuals on race' OWEN JONES
How do kids think about race? How are they affected by it? At what age should we talk to them about racism? What is the best way to do that? How can we raise our children to be antiracist?
In this inspiring and deeply personal investigation, Ibram X. Kendi explains how to safeguard our children from racism and how we can all participate in fostering a new generation of antiracists.
His essential and revolutionary insight is that our instinct to protect our children from racism by not talking about it is entirely wrong. Using the science of childhood development, illustrated with his own experiences as a father, he shows that only by teaching our children about the realities of racism from the youngest age can we truly protect them and build the antiracist society of the future.
