This reading guide is designed to accompany Audrey Ades and Chiara Fedele’s picture book The Rabbi and the Reverend: Joachim Prinz, Martin Luther King Jr., and Their Fight against Silence. We hold the belief that anti-racist practice is a process of learning (and unlearning) over time. Reading Is Resistance sees reading as an opportunity to seed deeper conversations and possibilities for action around racial justice in our communities.
Lesson content was written by Zapoura Newton-Calvert and was designed to start and deepen anti-bias/anti-racist conversations in families and other learning communities.

This powerful non-fiction picture book traces the lives of Rabbi Joachim Prinz and Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., from the childhood roots of their activism to their collaborative work as part of the Civil Rights Movement. Emphasizing cross-cultural resistance and collective action as vital to movements for change, this story reminds readers of the intersectionality of justice movements and the ways that we must all raise our voices together.
