Synopsis

Overcoming Prejudice by Tracey Baptiste

Prejudice exists in many forms. People discriminate against one another based on race, religion, weight, gender, and more. Overcoming Prejudice provides readers with multiple true stories of people who have faced various prejudices and describes how they dealt with it. A final chapter gives readers tips for how to improve their communication skills and prevent stereotyping in their communities. History and current events topics covered include: Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka; Cesar Chavez's fight for unions; the fight for women's right to vote; Japanese Americans who fought for the United States in World War II; lobbying for laws that help students with special education needs and physical disabilities thrive in school; Moses Fleetwood Walker and Jackie Robinson as the first African-Americans in pro baseball; and Native American leaders.
