Abstract:

In this empowering book, mothers and teachers look at the effects of racism on our children and communities - and suggest practical ways we can work to end racial divisions. Drawing on diverse cultural perspectives as well as experiences in multiracial families, the contributors offer insightful commentaries on racial intolerance and their experiences in fighting it: a white mother of a black daughter takes on discrimination at her daughter's high school, a Latina mother helps her biracial son learn to celebrate his ethnic heritage, a black mother prepares her young children for the journey through a not-yet tolerant society, a white adoptive mother of two Latina children examines the need for crossing cultural divides, a Japanese-American mother reflects on her dual heritage as she prepares to raise her newborn biracial child, a black college professor helps his students take their perspectives on race relations beyond the classroom, and a white Jewish mother of black sons redefines the meaning of survival and resistance at a Passover seder. A vital book that honors diversity in our rapidly changing society, Everyday Acts Against racism is an indispensable tool for teaching new values to children and for transforming divided communities.
