by Jelani Memory
Jelani Memory is not only the author of A Kids Book About Racism, but also the founder and CEO of A Kids Co. As noted on the A Kids Co. website, his identity as a biracial father informed his decision to write A Kids Book About Racism in 2018. Attractive graphic design reinforces the straightforward text, and has become a hallmark of the Kids Book About style. In July 2023, the company announced a partnership with DK Publishing. The Kids Book About series will be published by DK in multiple languages and distributed worldwide, starting with A Kids Book About Racism. Other titles in this series include A Kids Book About Systemic Racism and A Kids Book About White Privilege. A Kids Book About series provides beautifully crafted introductions to a wide variety of topics that kids are ready to talk about with trusted adults.
