Gr 9 Up—Marginalized communities affected by racism and prejudice in the United States, both historically and currently, are represented, with much of the discussion focusing on relations between white and black people. However, coverage is not limited to the United States. The texts present a worldwide account of slavery as far back as ancient times, discredited pseudoscientific ideas popular across nations, and the aftereffects of centuries of discrimination. Race relations in the United States are liberally discussed, with much consideration for legislation and activist efforts like the civil rights movement and Black Lives Matter. Informative sidebars augment the text, and discussion starters are included with each chapter's conclusion. An essential facts section nicely summarizes each topic before presenting an annotated list of social organizations. VERDICT This captivating look at race and racism is extremely pertinent to current national and international events.
