Synergy: Principles of Tolerance

In its Declaration of Principles on Tolerance, UNESCO defines tolerance as “respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. It is fostered by knowledge, openness, communication, and freedom of thought, conscience and belief. Tolerance is harmony in difference.”

Read the recently published children's picture book, then learn more at the website:

FOR BEAUTIFUL BLACK BOYS WHO BELIEVE IN A BETTER WORLD by Michael W. Waters and Keisha Morris tells the inspirational story of a boy growing up in a world of racism and gun violence who learns the importance of hope and activism. This timely, honest picture book includes a discussion guide to jump-start conversations about respect, nonviolence activism, and diversity.

The TEACHING TOLERANCE website helps parents and educators start difficult conversations about topics such as racism and violence.

It breaks my heart that in 2020 we still need books like this; but we desperately need more of them! The illustrations convey such emotion, I just want to weep for this little boy and his family as they struggle to make sense of the senseless. I also love that the illustrations include people of all colors and backgrounds at the marches and rallies.

The needless violence against people of color in this country is depicted sensitively in a manner that is accessible for elementary school age kids. The story itself isn't super strong, but that's actually not the point of the book (imho). The book includes a discussion guide and a bunch of resources from the Muhammad Ali Center at the end and that's where the true genius of this book lies. This book is a great springboard for further discussion, especially if the adult leading the discussion has read the discussion guide and prepared ahead of time. Definitely recommended.

An important book, could not be more relevant. Something I plan to use in my classroom to help kids of all ethnicities understand what the racial injustice in our society. Something I would recommend for all adults to read too. I would use this book to help my black students understand their own feelings and to help my white students to empathize with something they have not experienced personally.
I consider this a must have for my classroom library.

In this book, issues of race and violence are treated carefully and compassionately. Jeremiah, the young boy at the center of the story, grows locs, and this mirrors the moral of the story related to race-based violence. Combining the beauty of a young Black boy with developmentally-appropriate and honest descriptions of shootings, vigils, protests, and related topics, this book treats a hard topic with hope. There is a helpful discussion guide at the end for parents and educators, and I'd highly recommend it for both groups. ( )

This is an honest, meaningful portrayal of a young Black boy who, with the loving guidance of his family, becomes aware of the steady drumbeat of violence inflicted on Blacks in America. Observing real-life events, Jeremiah asks his Dad why this is happening, why are there shootings, what is a vigil? His father calmly and supportively responds as best he can, while explaining the ways in which he works for change. After each conversation, Jeremiah absorbs his father’s words, but …“he didn’t want to talk anymore”. A young boy’s heartfelt response as he tries to assimilate what he is coming to understand. In time Jeremiah is ready to talk and work for change. The illustrations are appealing and powerfully portray the beauty of Jeremiah through his journey. The book includes a thorough discussion guide created by the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Our church library is privileged to have received an advanced proof of this important book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers. For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World is highly recommended as an essential resource for all personal, public, school and church library collections. Thank you, Mr. Waters, for creating this excellent, much needed and inspiring book. ( )
