Podcast Ep6: Civil Rights and Racial Equality (YA, MG, and Picture Books)

With Black History Month coming up and Martin Luther King Day just past us, Podcast #6 is an extensive look at books about civil rights and racial inequality. This started out as only one (very long!) podcast, but I went back in and separated it into three shorter podcasts. I think this will be easier for librarians and teachers looking to isolate the titles they are most interested in:

  • Part 1= Young Adult titles
  • Part 2= Middle Grade titles
  • Part 3= Picture Books for Older Readers
I am also enjoying my shiny new podcasting microphone this week! Can you tell the difference?

Post-production edit: I want to give a huge shout-out to March, Book 3 by John Lewis and Freedom Over Me: Eleven Slaves, Their Lives and Dreams Brought to Life by Ashley Bryan by Ashley Bryan! I talked about both books in this podcast (March in Part 1 and Freedom Over Me in Part 3).

Both titles won major ALA awards after I recorded this podcast! March won a whopping four ALA awards on Monday! March won the Coretta Scott King Award, the Michael L. Printz, the Robert F. Sibert Award, and the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults. Freedom Over Me won a Newbery Honor, a Coretta Scott King Honor, and a Coretta Scott King Honor (Illustrator). Way to go!
