About

Overview

One of the most pressing issues of the last few years has been the rise of activism and other efforts that aim to combat discrimination and racial inequality. This book provides an overview of the problem as well as a starting point for young readers mitigating the effects of racial intolerance on their own lives and will enable them to deal with the often overwhelming stress of being an ethnic minority, whatever their background. With an approach both sensitive and assertive, it aims to assist youth in navigating interpersonal slights and abuse, as well as systemic racism.
