You can start with these children-friendly resources.

Empower teens to speak up with these fiction and non-fiction titles.

Begin with these e-books that discuss Black stories and amplify Black voices.

Support free resources for Black liberation, social justice, and anti-racism. Our work is just beginning.  Read more about Reading for Change—a campaign dedicated to expanding access to racial justice literature and curating programming at Chicago Public Library that will engage Chicagoans in conversations about systemic racism.
