Ep6, Part 1 Civil Rights and Racial Inequality (YA titles)

Welcome to Episode #6, part 1.  My name is Leigh Collazo, and I am a certified school librarian and former middle school English teacher. Let's talk about books! Today's podcast, Civil Rights and Racial Inequality, has been split into three parts: YA titles (grades 8+), Middle Grade titles (grades 5-8), and Picture Books for Older Readers (grades 5+).

This episode is Part 1, so we are discussing YA titles.
