The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together
Racialization has harmed all of us. This book takes a look at the historical and current impact of “zero sum mindset” when it comes to societal systems and offers an invitation into what the author calls the “solidarity dividend”. I would also recommend the young readers adaptation for students.

Teaching for Justice and Belonging
This book offers an invitation to the healthy soil needed to cultivate an anti-bias, anti-racism growth journey, leading readers away from fruitless performative actions to genuine transformation. This book will equip pre-service and in-service K-12 educators, as well as all adults who care for children, with the tools to overcome the negative impact of racialization and work together to develop and sustain the learning spaces and experiences our children deserve.
