Young Children and Racial Justice

Taking action for racial equality in the early years – understanding the past, thinking about the present, planning for the future

By Jane Lane; Foreword by Herman Ousley
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, National Children's Bureau

Young Children and Racial Justice provides a framework for good practice in racial equality for everyone working in the early years sector.

It provides an accessible overview of racism, and explores how children learn their attitudes towards people who are different to themselves. Covering key areas such as prejudice, discrimination and Government policy, the book addresses current and contentious issues such as terminology, terrorism, community cohesion, skin colour, living in mainly white areas, name-calling, unlearning racism and dealing with racist incidents.

Designed for use in professional development, with case studies, references and accessible articles for students, this book gives practitioners the tools and knowledge to implement race equality policies and action plans.

The book is written for those who train, advise and support those working with children and families. The whole book has a 'can do' feeling threading through. Every trainer, tutor and adviser, or leader of any team in the early years should have and read and act on this book. It speaks to the heart, and it helps you to think and do.

– Professor Tina Bruce, CBE
