25 Anti-Racist Books for Families
Since Boogie Down Books launched in 2017, the core values that we use to guide our work have been joy, justice, and community. Thank you for joining us in promoting joyful reading experiences that center the stories, identities, and experiences of young people in our Bronx community and beyond.
These are our 25 recommendations for families about anti-racism, the Black Lives Matter movement, civil rights, activism, allyship, and the history and culture of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in the United States. Titles are listed roughly in order from youngest to oldest intended audience.
Please also see our list of 25 Anti-Racist Books for Educators.
Thank you for acknowledging the labor and expertise that thoughtfully curated this list by purchasing books from us that you've learned about through our recommendations. Your money will recirculate throughout the Bronx, and you'll be supporting people, not corporate algorithms.
