What is Race? Who are Racists? Why Does Skin Colour Matter? And Other Big Questions

By Nikesh Shukla and Claire Heuchan

  • Hardback
  • £13.99

An important and timely book on race and racism, encouraging children to think for themselves about the issues involved

Talk about race is often discouraged, but this book aims to bring everyone into the conversation. It explores the history of race and society, giving context to how racist attitudes come into being. It looks at belonging and identity, the damaging effects of stereotyping and the benefits of positive representation. The authors talk sensitively about how to identify and challenge racism, and how to protect against and stop racist behaviour.

Aimed at young people aged 10 and upwards.

Part of the groundbreaking and important 'And Other Big Questions' series, which offers balanced and considered views on the big issues we face in the world we live in today.

Other titles in the series include:
What is Humanism? How do you live without a god?
What is Feminism? Why do we need it?
Who are Refugees and Migrants? What makes people leave their homes?
What is Consent? Why is it important?
What is Right and Wrong? Who Decides? Where Do Values Come From?
