Reading to End Racism is a local group that helps children learn about and overcome racism by sending people to schools where they read books that deal with racism to the children and lead discussions about the books as well as the children’s thoughts and experiences. In this interview, the three founders of Reading to End Racism talk about the origins of the group; the program’s goals, methods and accomplishments; people and organizations that have helped the group grow; issues of social justice in Boulder County; and recommended books for facilitating learning about racism.
