How has anti-racism influenced you?
Anti-racism has helped me have a clearer understanding of the world around me and how we got here, and it has helped me shape a clear vision of what an anti-racist, just society could and will be like.
Who did you write This Book Is Anti-Racist for?
This is the book I wish I had when I was 9 years old. I wrote this for all my former students who always want to know that, even though they’re young, they have the agency to make impactful change. And, this is the book I want my children to read. I wrote this book for parents and families, for educators and administrators. I wrote it for all the students and children who live in our racialized society. This book is for our ancestors. It’s for our futures.
What effect do you hope This Book Is Anti-Racist will have on the reader?
I hope this book opens up a door for a deeper understanding of our collective history of racism. Everyone who reads this will have the opportunity to reflect, grow, and move towards working in solidarity with others. Readers are encouraged to create action that disrupts racism. I hope every reader will see themselves in this book and be moved to work towards liberation.
