Ibram X. Kendy writes the fairy tale “Good night racism”
The next book in Ibram X. Kendy’s prolific and award-winning publishing career is a picture book with a hopeful message.
Penguins Young Leaders announced on Wednesday in Kendy’s “Good Night Racism” that the author aims to connect with children’s ability to imagine a better world. This book is described by Cbabi Bayoc and will be released on June 14th.
“‘Good night racism’ is not about what it is, it’s about what it can do,” Kendy said in a statement. “It’s about good morning in a fair and just world after wishing good night for racism.”
