I hope in my lifetime we can put behind us picture books with discussion notes that help adults navigate social ills like white supremacy. This book is a great resource for starting a dialog with children about white privilege. It won't make them feel guilty, instead it demonstrates how or when to speak up when bias hurts. Despite its huge intro and these notes, the book is very simple, which is what children need. #blacklivesmatter

Short primer to teach children about the #BlackLivesMatter movement and its context within the civil rights movement and other protest campaigns. Clear, effective introduction to a complex issue.

DrexEdit I saw on Facebook the other day that Colin Kaepernick has published a book and started his own publishing company. 👍💜 6mo

Dear Martin and its follow-up Dear Justyce: These are both amazing, eye-opening, and heartbreaking. Both depict the social injustices that people of color (in particular, males) are faced with every.single.day. No matter what. I finished these and immediately shared with my cousin. #socialjustice #socialinjustice #nicstone #yareads #blacklivesmatter #checkyourprivilege

These two books are powerful, heartbreaking and so pertinent to our current times. Exhausting but also hopeful. A reminder that there is still so much work to do to be a truly equal society. Wonderful characters and portrayal, Justyce and Quan will stay with me, in my heart, forever. The audiobooks were amazing!

Excellent memoir from Patrisse Khan-Cullors, illustrating how growing up as a Black child and teen gave her insights into systemic oppression that led her to co-found #BlackLivesMatter as an adult. She does a great job of interweaving experience and analysis, opening up her soul and personal relationships and examining intersectional oppressions. Painful and anger-inducing but essential.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa This was a great book! One of the other co-founders of BLM wrote this one, and I‘m looking forward to reading it sometime this year too. Either when my library hold comes in or when I have a few extra dollars. 😉 11mo

I already shared February stats. And only Queenie was set in London. Important book for #BlackLivesMatter movement.
This London bus was a gift from a friend who moved to London.

Be sure to read the Acknowledgments at the end when you read this.

Books like these should be part of law enforcement training curriculum. I say this as the spouse of a law enforcement officer, from whom I have heard many stories of the difficulties, failures, and the successes (there are some) of the U.S. incarceration system.
