Overview

“Will leave readers thinking about the ways that humor can be a survival tool in a world that tends to put people in boxes.” — Publishers Weekly

Edited by acclaimed author and speaker Mitali Perkins, this collection of fiction and nonfiction uses a mix of styles as diverse as their authors, from laugh-out-loud funny to wry, ironic, or poignant, in prose, poetry, and comic form.

With stories by:
Cherry Cheva
Varian Johnson
G. Neri
Naomi Shihab Nye
Mitali Perkins
Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich
Debbie Rigaud
Francisco X. Stork

Wonderful book which uses appropriate humor of several authors expressing how racism feels. We need more books like this one. For middle-secondary students. Great discussion starters.
