Raising Confident Black Kids includes everything Black and multi-racial families need to know to raise empowered, confident children. From the realities of living while Black to age-appropriate ways to discuss racism with your children, educator M.J. Fievre provides a much-needed resource for parents of Black kids everywhere.

It's hard to balance protecting your child's innocence with preparing them for the realities of Black life. When--and how--do you approach racism with your children? How do you protect their physical and mental health while also preparing them for a country full of systemic racism? On the heels of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria and "Multiplication Is for White People" comes a parenting book specifically for parents of Black kids.

Now, there's a guide to help you teach your kids how to thrive--even when it feels like the world is against them. From racial profiling and police encounters to the whitewashed lessons of history taught in schools, raising Black kids is no easy feat. In Raising Confident Black Kids, teacher M.J. Fievre passes on the tips and guidance that have helped her educate her Black students, including:

  • How to encourage creativity and build self-confidence in your kids
  • Ways to engage in activism and help build a safer community with and for your children--and ways to rest when you need to
  • How to explain systemic racism, intersectionality, and micro-aggressions
