Description

WHY ADULTS REFUSE TO ADMIT RACIST CONTENT IN THE CHILDREN'S BOOKS THEY LOVE

As childhood is where the psyche becomes susceptible (or more resistant) to racism, children’s books are one of the best instruments to combat this social ill. To better educate adults who resist considering that beloved children’s literature may harbour racist content, Philip Nel will cover the “hate mail” inspired by his 2017 book on The Hidden Racism of Children’s Literature and the Need for Diverse Books, and offer pedagogical strategies in response.

About Philip Nel:

Philip Nel is a University Distinguished Professor of English at Kansas State University. He is the author or co-editor of eleven books, the most recent of which is Was the Cat in the Hat Black?: The Hidden Racism of Children’s Literature, and the Need for Diverse Books.
