This reading guide is designed to accompany Alphabet Rockers and Ashley Evans’ picture book You Are Not Alone. 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 deYou eper conversations and possibilities for action around racial justice in our communities.
Lesson content was written by Raina Christian and was designed to start and deepen anti-bias/anti-racist conversations in families and other learning communities. The editor was Remonda Hanna.
THE READ ALOUD
You are Powerful. You are Brave.

Through the book’s exploration of diversity, readers learn that everyone belongs and no one is ever alone.
