Booklist of Diverse Nonfiction Literature for Young Readers

The list features high-quality nonfiction in the social sciences and humanities representing people of color. With titles for early (0-4 years) to advanced readers (12 and up), the list draws from a wide range of sources, including award and honor lists, bloggers, and publishers.


There is a need for sustained attention on children’s and young adult literature that reflects non-dominant racial and cultural experiences…This bibliography is my attempt to carve out a space for those books that tell the stories of people of color, books that present counter-narratives to dominant ways of thinking, and books that carry forth histories that may otherwise be forgotten.
