When a super-speed reader doesn't have a car for a month due to a predatory car insurance industry, you can get a LOT of reading done!!

I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

Who are you? What is racism? Where does it come from? Why does it exist? What can you do to disrupt it? Learn about

"If you know better, do better." - Maya Angelou

I could not be more happy when I got approved for an ARC of this book! As a POC myself, this book felt personal and precious to me. It was such a beautiful yet difficult book to read because it makes you reflect on yourself and your privilege. One cannot read this book and not be moved by not only the life examples that the author gives us but also the real life historical facts that blow you away. I have always been invested in finding out more ab

Heck yes!
This is a beautifully constructed, powerfully written, accessible guide on how to be anti-racist. It was a quick read, but provided lots of in-depth examples to back up what it was saying, and was careful to be inclusive and mindful towards all groups. I could see this book being worked into a middle school curriculum, as it contained engaging activities and discussion questions. Its lovely colored illustrations and quotes also make it a great keepsake and addition to any early-reader'

*I am so grateful to have been approved for this on Net Galley*

The first thing I would like to say about this book is that it is not just a book for children: things are framed in ways that are easily understood but do not mistake 'easy to understand' with 'nothing for adults to learn.' The second thing I would like to say, as usual, is that as a white-passing PoC make sure that you focus more on reading reviews from black people and non white-passing PoC.

Well, this was delightful! It was an accessible, inclusive book on how we can do better to fight racism at our own pace and in our own ways. It was aimed at young adults, maybe between the ages of around 12-18, perhaps? It meant the language used was easy to understand, everything was explained and the formatting was easy to read, as well. It was sort of laid out like a magazine, which I thought was really unique and interesting. It felt engaging, and would allow the information to stay intact l ...more

*I received this book from NetGalley in return for a honest review*

This is such a beautiful book that also packs a powerful punch and has great lessons for people of all ages. Tackling racism from a base level and building up to the things that we should be doing every day to be anti-racist compiled with bright and engaging artwork and personal stories is what makes this book so great and something that everyone should read. I love that each lesson ends with activities to either do o

I cannot day enough how much I loved this book.

Everything in it from the images to the quotes to the message. It was well thought out, well executed and absolutely beautiful.

This book should be read by everyone. Learning about inclusion, privilege, human beings choices and more, I found my mind being opened wide to issues we cannot ignore and understand them much better than I did before reading this book.

This is a tool to teach people to be kind and be strong and be better to one another.

I got a copy of this graphic novel through NetGalley. All opinions are my own

This was a great read! I believe this book can be a great read for 12-20+ year old readers because of the language and the way this book approached the topic of anti-racism. Throughout the book, as mentioned in the title, there are 20 lessons on how to fight racism, and also it included different activities to reflect on each of the topics discussed by the author. I found this book to be really engaging and easy to r

A colorful and engaging book about racism and how to recognize it and take action against it. This book is appropriate for middle grade kids through adults. The information is presented in an easy to understand manner and each chapter ends with activities that you can do to help you understand the message and yourself better.

This book would be great for use in a school setting or at home.

Brightly illustrated, engagingly written, and accessible primer for young readers. Does more than simply mention intersectionality and colorism in passing. Includes thoughtful activities, glossary, and further reading.

Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!
