Why? by Taye Diggs
A piercing picture book about racial injustice from a child’s perspective from Taye Diggs and Shane Evans.
Yes, my sweet boy?
Why are those people shouting?
Our people are shouting because we need to be heard. We need to be heard.
Why? is a question asked by children daily, and in this striking and timely story, it begins a straightforward and challenging conversation between children of color and the adults in their lives. Why are the buildings burning? Why are people marching? Why are they crying?
Taye Diggs has written a beautiful, powerful, and poignant story that peers through the eyes of a child as they struggle to understand why these events are happening.
