How You Can Join the Fight Against White Supremacy
Perfect for fans of Stamped: Remix, This Book is Antiracist, and The Black Friend, this urgent book explores the roots of racism and its legacy in modern day, all while empowering young people with actionable ways they can help foster a better world and become antiracists.
RISE UP! breaks down the origins of racial injustice and its continued impact today, connecting dots between the past and present.
By including contemporary examples ripped from headlines and actionable ways young people can help create a more inclusive world, sociologist Crystal M. Fleming shares the knowledge and values that unite all antiracists: compassion, solidarity, respect, and courage in the face of adversity.
