Anti-racism, Justice, and Activism Books and Resources

In Granite’s Sora we’ve curated a collection of over 80 books for children and teens discussing race, racism, civil rights, social justice, and related topics, both fiction and nonfiction.

Log in to Sora with your student number or staff username and password to browse and borrow the books.

Sources and Additional Resources

Here are some of the key book lists and resources we used to build our collection. We were unable to purchase all of the books on these lists in Sora, so you may find more titles to check out from the Salt Lake City Public Library or Salt Lake County Public Libraries, or consider adding them to your school’s library collection in the fall.





“Children’s Books That Discuss Race & Racism,” a twitter thread from teacher Brittany Smith which went viral. She’s now also shared the list on her website: https://www.wanderingbritt.com/blog/childrens-books-that-prompt-the-conversations-of-race-racism

We are also sharing these links and other resources on our Anti-Racism, Justice and Activism Books and Resources board in our newly reactivated Pinterest account.
