I have been doing the work of equity/inclusion/diversity/multiculturalism/anti-racism since 1986. My induction/introduction when a professor and specialist in early childhood education introduced me to the book, Anti-Bias Curriculum: Tools for Empowering Young Children, by Louise Derman Sparks and the A. B. C. Task Force. Since that time, additional seeds have been planted by the many wonderful men and women who are fully engaged in and committed to “the work” on a daily basis. They are tireless warriors, dedicated to children – all children.
I have read many books on the subject of equity/inclusion/diversity/multiculturalism/anti-racism, most of which I consider “classics”, and a few which have recently arrived on the scene. Below, I offer you the “classics.” These books have stood the test of time, and present lessons and information that are as powerful and transformational today as they were when they were first published. Full-disclosure: These books are amongst my personal and professional favorites, and are those I own and have read. Additionally, these books will serve all teachers well. Several of the following have been updated since their original publishing date.
