Believing in a Better World: Talking with Children about Race and Racial Violence

Flyaway Books and the Muhammad Ali Center are proud to host a virtual panel discussion with the creators of the brand-new picture book, For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World. Inspired by real-life events, the book tells the story of a boy named Jeremiah and his family who discover hopeful forms of activism and advocacy in response to racism and gun violence in their community. For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World includes a discussion and activity guide created by the Muhammad Ali Center that explores racism, gun violence, and social change.

This special event will be moderated by Emmy award-winning journalist Jean West of Jean West’s Medical Digest, and panel guests include:

  • Michael W. Waters – Author of For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World
  • Keisha Morris – Illustrator of For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World
  • Erin E. Herbert – Director of programming at the Muhammad Ali Center and co-writer of the guide
  • Darryl Young, Jr. – Manager of Programming at the Muhammad Ali Center and co-writer of the guide

Together panel guests will discuss how adults can talk with children about race and racial violence within the context of For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World. There will also be a book giveaway, where five lucky attendees will win a free copy of picture book.
