In June 2020, my daughter and my 4-years-old granddaughter, Jaliyah, attended a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest with her cousin and aunt.
The book, My Protest is told from Jaliyah's perspective. It recounts her experience of going to a Black Lives Matter protest during the height of the George Floyd incident & Coronavirus pandemic.
We were inspired to tell Jaliyah's unique true story, who was only 4-years-old when she attended the protest.
This book is the perfect book for teachers and parents to discuss the purpose of Black Lives Matter, the Coronavirus, and racism with elementary-aged children.
Being a retired teacher and my daughter a preschool teacher, we believe this book would be an excellent tool for teachers and parents.
