Description-

  • This young adult adaptation of the New York Times bestselling White Rage is essential antiracist reading for teens.

    An NAACP Image Award finalist

    A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year
    A NYPL Best Book for Teens
    History texts often teach that the United States has made a straight line of progress toward Black equality. The reality is more complex: milestones like the end of slavery, school integration, and equal voting rights have all been met with racist legal and political maneuverings meant to limit that progress. We Are Not Yet Equal examines five of these moments: The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with Jim Crow laws; the promise of new opportunities in the North during the Great Migration was limited when blacks were physically blocked from moving away from the South; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 led to laws that disenfranchised millions of African American voters and a War on Drugs that disproportionally targeted blacks; and the election of President Obama led to an outburst of violence including the death of Black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri as well as the election of Donald Trump.
    Including photographs and archival imagery and extra context, backmatter, and resources specifically for teens, this book provides essential history to help work for an equal future.

    Gr 9 Up-Prolific and celebrated author Bolden has adapted Anderson's White Rage for YA audiences. The text guides readers through an analysis of the relentless attacks on the protected rights and social mobility of black Americans by white people through legislative and judicial acts. It outlines the repeated obstructions, from their passage into the present decade, of the 14th and 15th amendments, and the Civil and Voting Rights Acts of 1960s. The work details countless cases and includes paths to further research in its establishment of the undeniable legislative and judicial roots of systemic racism, including the criminalization of black people in the 1980s during the crack epidemic. Students are also presented with an account of the Southern Manifesto in 1956, when just two years after Brown vs. Board of Education, 101 members of Congress "stalled and defied" educational equity. Teens will gain insight into the roles of dissenting Supreme Court Justices, like Thurgood Marshall and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in speaking out against blatant attacks, state after state and case after case, on equitable education, nondiscrimination, and voting rights. Using this easy-to-follow informational text with a robust list of citations, readers can witness 150 years of continuous systemic racism and deeply understand the mechanism by which federal protection is given then taken away by special agency, state, or local political action. VERDICT A needed resource for YA nonfiction collections.-Sara Lissa Paulson, City-As-School High School, New York City
