Anti-Racist books for All

The CBC Diversity Committee is committed to working for an equitable and just society. We denounce the systemic oppression and violence to the Black community. And we grieve. 

Discrimination is a learned behavior, but we believe it can be overcome and changed to empathy. For parents and educators inspired to change, we recommend these Anti-Racist books:
