Not My Idea

A Book about Whiteness

A child struggles to understand the violence and social injustice they see on the news and in the community around them in a timely story that addresses racism, civic responsibility, and the concept of whiteness. Mixed media collages and handwritten text personalize the turmoil. The book’s emotional plea is for the next generation to embrace knowledge and truth; it recounts the words and actions of those who stand up and speak out for equality.
