Only 2.9 Percent of Children’s Books Target Black Children

You don’t see many faces of color in children’s books these days. Only 2.9 percent of children’s books had significant African or African-American content, according to a survey of 3,200 titles by the Cooperative Children’s Book Center. Two percent of the books were by Black authors and illustrators. (Photo: Courtesy of Random House)
