A recent addition to the UW Digital Collections is the bulletin Interracial Books for Children published by the Council on Interracial Books for Children. Our run of 90 issues of this publication starts in 1966 and goes through 1989. This periodical is chock-full of important critical articles that trace the rise and fall of the first wave of diversity in books for children and teens. The Council on Interracial Books for Children was instrumental as a change agent in the fields of children’s literature, librarianship, and education. The publication offers scholars insight into how this organization went up against establishment thinking and changed children’s books forever.
