As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
In addition to donating, listening, and protesting, part of doing the work to be antiracist allies to the Black community means educating ourselves and our children and turning our hope to eradicate racism into action. Diversifying our family's bookshelves and reading important works of both fiction and nonfiction by and about Black authors is just a start, but it can empower our kids to listen, learn, and grow in the belief that human beings should all be treated with equality.
