‘How to Be a (Young) Antiracist’: A conversation with Nic Stone
The New York Times bestseller ‘How to be an Antiracist’ by Ibram X. Kendi is shaping the way a generation thinks about race and racism. ‘How to be a (Young) Antiracist’ is a dynamic reframing of the concepts shared in the adult book, with young adulthood front and center. Aimed at readers 12 and up, and co-authored by award-winning children’s book author Nic Stone, ‘How to be a (Young) Antiracist’ empowers teen readers to help create a more just society. Antiracism is a journey–and now young adults will have a map to carve their own path. Kendi and Stone have revised this work to provide anecdotes and data that speaks directly to the experiences and concerns of younger readers, encouraging them to think critically and build a more equitable world in doing so.
