Teachers have a crucial role in educating children about the racial injustices of the past, and which continue to manifest in the present, enabling an understanding of the issues at stake and nurturing within all children a pride in their heritage. One of the ways in which we can support this is by recommending high-quality fiction so that children can find themselves in books and stories as well as use story to learn about the experiences and lives of others.
These are a selection of 150 books suitable for children and teens in primary and secondary schools. For more, or to discuss your requirements, please contact the Schools Library Service.
