How does one relate the complexities of racism to young people? In her debut nonfiction title, Jewell gives tweens and teens the background information and language to understand how racism was created, how it continues to work, and why it's important to fight against it. The author begins with a thorough overview of identity, intersectionality, privilege, ethnicity, and other concepts necessary to recognize the dominant culture and those who have been marginalized. Accompanied by vibrant digital artwork featuring real and imagined people of color, the short, dense chapters continue with descriptions of key individuals and events in racist history from around the world and culminate with myriad strategies to take action against racism, both individually and in solidarity with others. Throughout the primer, Jewell interjects insight from her own life as a biracial cisgender woman and offers related, thought-provoking activities. Although geared for YA readers, adult collaboration may be necessary to help unpack the volume of information and some of its difficult issues, as well as provide context for select activities. Grades 7-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2019 December #1

Using clear, compelling language, Jewell employs four sections to deftly explain progressive understandings of identity, history, action, and solidarity as tools to encourage antiracist reflection, thought, and action. From the author's note introducing the idea that "racism is a problem, a very serious problem," to the volume's explorations of "spending that privilege" and "calling out and calling in," Jewell offers readers at various points in their activist journeys a necessary primer on antiracist thinking (a glossary helpfully defines underlined terms used throughout, including cisgender, neurodiverse, and femme). Thoughtful, energizing calls to action and journal prompts encourage readers to check in with themselves and to "grow from our discomfort." Durand's stylish illustrations punctuate the text-heavy pages; robust supplemental materials, including notes on the text and suggested reading, point toward ongoing learning. Ages 11–15. (Jan.)
