Welcome to the Racial Justice Learning Exchange (RJLE) Youth Book Club! Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell is excited to host this book club for youth to engage in dialogue on the importance of the select books each quarter.
Each quarter, we will read a new book. Book Club participants will be invited to engage in discussions regarding the contents of the book.
The book club selections will align with Racial Justice Learning Exchange public events focus on shared histories and current dynamics impacting racial justice.
Whether you are just starting your learning journey or you’re already a bookworm for racial justice, we look forward to your participation and are committed to supporting our collective learning!

How To Be A (Young) Antiracist
By Ibram X. Kendi and Nic Stone
How to be a (Young) Antiracist empowers teen readers to help create a more just society. Antiracism is a journey--and now young adults will have a map to carve their own path. Kendi and Stone have revised this work to provide anecdotes and data that speaks directly to the experiences and concerns of younger readers, encouraging them to think critically and build a more equitable world in doing so.
