Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Brendan Kiely starts a conversation with white kids about race in this accessible introduction to white privilege, allyship, and anti-racism. Every Black kid gets “the talk.” The talk about where to keep their hands, how to wear their clothes, how to speak, how to act around police—all to stay safe and stay alive as a Black person in a racist world. White kids don’t get this talk. Instead, they’re barely spoken to about race at all—and that needs to change. The Other Talk comes from many years of discussion between Brendan Kiely and Jason Reynolds, with Jason encouraging Brendan to begin this much-needed conversation. Brendan’s accessible, anecdotal, and honest account introduces young readers to white privilege, unconscious bias, and allyship—because racism isn’t just a Black issue, it’s a human issue, and it’s time we all start doing our part.
