Engaging in acts of social justice means doing your part to distribute power so everyone has a fair chance to live a full, productive life and it’s something we should all be able to agree on. In her work, Dr. Baxley has seen white people who want to do the work of anti-racism but know they have to do a better job of educating themselves and their children. And she’s seen parents of color, particularly Black parents, who want to know what more they can do to keep their children safe and shatter negative narratives regarding their children. Dr. Baxley herself writes “The book is a selfish endeavor. It’s as much about keeping my children safe as it is about giving other moms and dads the tools to empower their children. As a mom of color, I know I can’t protect my children alone. They will need allies as they grow.” 
Poised to become essential reading for all parents committed to social change, Social Justice Parenting will offer parents everywhere the opportunity to nurture a future generation of humane, compassionate individuals.

“Powerful debut…Baxley shines in her ability to be encouraging without being judgmental. This hopeful guide inspires.”—Publishers Weekly starred review

“This book is for parents who want to discuss racial, social and economic inequities with their young children in a healthy and beneficial way. Baxley’s meaty book is sure to provoke thought and positive dialogue. A must read.”—Library Journal starred review
