Ep6, Part 2 Civil Rights and Racial Inequality (MG titles)

Welcome to Episode #6, part 2. 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 2, so we are discussing Middle Grade titles, which are ideal for students in grades 5-8.

My name is Leigh Collazo, and I am a certified school librarian and former middle school English teacher. Let's talk about books!
