WHY?: A CONVERSATION ABOUT RACE by Taye Diggs, illustrated by Shane W. Evans: WHY? takes a hard look at the events of the past year through the point of view of inquisitive children. This poignant, piercing, and memorable story strikes an emotional chord after the unrest, highlighting the work still needed to be done to bring racial justice to all.

I enjoyed reading this book and recommend it for young children. I think it addresses a topic that is very important today.

IDA B. WELLS, VOICE OF TRUTH by Michelle Duster; illustrations by Laura Freeman: An inspiring picture book biography of groundbreaking journalist and civil rights activist Ida B. Wells, as told by her great-granddaughter, Michelle Duster.
