Description


Emma y José escucharon que algo había pasado en su ciudad. La policía mató a un hombre negro. “¿Por qué lo mató la policía?” “¿Pueden enviar a los policías a la cárcel?” Algo pasa en mi ciudad es la historia de cómo dos familias, una blanca y otra negra, discuten sobre el asesinato de un hombre negro a manos de la policía. Esta historia busca responder las preguntas que los niños se hacen ante un hecho difícil o traumático, así como ayudarlos a identificar y hacer frente la injusticia racial. El libro incluye una guía para padres y profesores.
 
Emma and Josh heard that something happened in their town. A Black man was shot by the police. "Why did the police shoot that man?" "Can police go to jail?" Something Happened in Our Town follows two families — one White, one Black — as they discuss a police shooting of a Black man in their community. The story aims to answer children's questions about such traumatic events, and to help children identify and counter racial injustice in their own lives. Includes an extensive Note to Parents and Caregivers with guidelines for discussing race and racism with children, child-friendly definitions, and sample dialogues.
