We're donating children's books with black protagonists, written by black authors and illustrators to 100 schools across the UK. If you'd like to support us in this mission, then you can donate a book for £5, or a bundle of 5 books for £25 which will help us reach more schools.
The #BlackLivesMatter conversation has made all of us at UpCircle reflect on how we’re actively educating ourselves, but also crucially our children. Back in June we spoke about the importance of children’s education in working towards an anti-racist society. From this, we promised to address the lack of inclusiveness and diversity in children's books in UK schools.🏫
We’ve taken the summer holidays to turn these words on anti-racism into tangible action. So, we're donating a bundle of children’s books, that have a black protagonist and are written by black authors and illustrators - to 100 schools across the UK. We want these books to give children access to black history, and enable hugely important discussions about race. 📚
Our aim is to get these books into schools, ready for when children return at the start of September. Each book in the bundle is suited to a different age group and brings its own special message:
The Last Stop on Market Street - CJ is disappointed with having to get the bus when his friends get the car. His Nana helps him to see the beauty and fun in their routine.
Clean Up! - Rocket goes to the Caribbean to visit her grandparents, but is shocked by the pollution spoiling their home and putting the local sea life at risk.
Little Leaders: Exceptional Men in Black History - beautiful illustrated book that illuminates iconic and lesser-known male figures in history.
Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History - illustrated book that shows inspiring female figures in history.
My Hair - a little girl searches for the best party hair, showcasing a dazzling array of intricate hairstyles.
