Teacher Goes Viral For Sharing Favorite Children’s Books That Discuss Racism

Reading has never been more fundamental.

In the wake of the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many more the protests against police brutality and racial injustices have officially spread across the entire United States and even to nations around the globe. The protests have brought a lot of questions about race and racism to the surface leaving a lot of people wondering how they can become more educated on the subject. Luckily, an inclusive pre-kindergarten teacher named Brittany Smith tweeted a list of recommended reading to teach children more about race and racism.

The Twitter thread showcases over 25 books and has already been liked over 400,000 times and retweeted over 200,000 times. Talking to Buzzfeed Brittany said “I work with a diverse array of students from all backgrounds, and — as a black woman myself — I know the importance of representation and diversity within the classroom. Creating a welcoming and safe environment for all students means having representation, acknowledging and celebrating differences.”

We are incredibly lucky to have people like Brittany in the world who are educating the next generation to help insure this country is growing in the right direction. To see the entire list and to follow Brittany on Twitter click here.
