Where Are the People of Color in Children’s Books? – an excellent and important New York Times op-ed by Christopher Myers, in response to a recent study, which found that “of 3,200 children’s books published in 2013, just 93 were about black people.”
For an antidote to this worrisome trend, see Toni Morrison’s The Big Box and the second edition of John Updike’s A Child’s Calendar.
