What are Race and Racism? is a perfect introduction to historical and modern racial oppression for the young reader. This thin chapter book begins by citing a modern issue of racism, looking back on the history of racism and describing its evolution over time, and then revisiting modern problems and solutions. The sensible flow of the book provides a great overview for those who may not understand the concepts of microaggressions, the Black Lives Matter movement, or other hot topic issues.
