Anti Racist Mid­dle Grade books engage young read­ers in con­ver­sa­tions about racism, dis­crim­i­na­tion, and sys­tems of oppres­sion. Inspired by this list from BookRiot.

Each year, a com­mit­tee of school and pub­lic librar­i­ans reads wide­ly to choose a list of twen­ty nom­i­nat­ed titles. Then young adults choose books from among that list to read and rate. The books that earn the high­est num­ber of read­ers and rat­ings become the Peach Book and Hon­or Books. Learn more at http://​geor​gia​peachaward​.org.

A Read Woke book chal­lenges a social norm, gives a voice to the voice­less, pro­vides infor­ma­tion about a group that has been dis­en­fran­chised, seeks to chal­lenge the sta­tus quo, and has a pro­tag­o­nist from an under­rep­re­sent­ed or oppressed group. Read Woke was start­ed by Cice­ly Lewis, a Gwin­nett Coun­ty media specialist.
