Education is an essential part of the Demystifying Diversity Podcast, so we’ll continue researching and curating a list of resources for you to read, listen, and watch. Our recommended books are categorized according to generalized reading ages so that children and adults alike can have fun brushing up on their racial and cultural literacy skills. Keep checking in for material updates. Once you’ve read, listened, or watched any of these suggested items, we would love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to contact us and don't forget to sign up for the Demystifying Diversity Podcast Newsletter!
