The books on this list are collections of biographies of social justice activists. There are also many excellent biographies of social justice activists for elementary and middle school, however we do not have a list for those yet. An online source we recommend is Americans Who Tell the Truth. (Note that while the books below are excellent collections, we don't agree that every profile fits the description of a social justice changemaker.)
Your support of Teaching for Change's non-profit online bookstore allows us to continue to build our lists of the best multicultural and social justice children's books. Wherever you buy your books, we encourage you to support indie bookstores (like ours) and boycott Amazon.
