Summary

[A] celebration of solidarity, allyship, and community...A welcoming resource for conversations about equality and social justice that shows readers how identities are made up of myriad influences.--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

The brainchild of three women-of-color sociologists, IntersectionAllies is a smooth, gleeful entry into intersectional feminism. The nine interconnected characters proudly describe themselves and their backgrounds, involving topics that range from a physical disability to language brokering, offering an opportunity to take pride in a personal story and connect to collective struggle for justice.

The group bond grounds the message of allyship and equality. When things get hard, the kids support each other for who they are: Parker defends Kate, a genderfluid character who eschews skirts for a superhero cape; Heejung welcomes Yuri, a refugee escaping war, into their community; and Alejandra's family cares for Parker after school while her mother works. Advocating respect and inclusion, IntersectionAllies is a necessary tool for learning to embrace, rather than shy away from, difference.

Featuring gorgeous illustrations on every page by Ashley Seil Smith , as well as powerful introductions by activist and law professor Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw , who coined the term "intersectionality," and Dr. Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro , author of Intersectionality: An Intellectual History.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The concept of intersectionality, widely known in academia but less so in children's literature, is here broken down with ease and clarity. The premise defined in the back matter is that our identities are comprised of a multitude of parts, all of which influence our perspectives and life experiences. Some parts come with privilege and others with marginalization, but they all can coexist. By describing their own backgrounds, nine different characters show us that not only do aspects of our identities intersect but our lives do as well. Privilege can be used to connect with and make room for others, thus someone with English-language skills can translate for another, and a gender-fluid person has something in common with a girl who wears a hijab, and so on. Cheerful, vibrant illustrations depict a diverse population standing together in solidarity, be it on the playing field, in a gender-neutral bathroom, or at a protest rally. A preface by Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw and endnotes provide additional information.--Amina Chaudhri Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "With a foreword by civil rights advocate Kimberlé Crenshaw, who coined the term intersectionality, this celebration of solidarity, allyship, and community is spoken in the voices of children of varying backgrounds, abilities, and identities. Paper cutout-style images in bright colors show the children in empowering moments, described in upbeat, rhyming verse. Alejandra uses "a chair, but it doesn't define me/ Instead, it allows me to zzzip/ glide/ and/ play." A child called Kate, whose "friends defend my choices and place," prefers a red cape to "skirts and frills." Gloria, who speaks Spanish and English, describes herself as "a daughter, a partner, and an entrepreneur," and Heejung, born in Seoul, helps her mother by "translating for her one word to another." Spreads show allies helping each other in daily life, asserting their individuality, and standing together during protests, while repeating text urges readers to "make room for all." Back matter and a discussion guide invite readers to learn more about intersectionality as a framework for understanding themselves, their peers, and their broader communities. A welcoming resource for conversations about equality and social justice that shows readers how identities are made up of myriad influences. Ages 6-12. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
