Children’s book addresses police shootings of unarmed black men

ATLANTA—Michael Brown, Eric Garner, 12-year-old Tamir Rice.
As a series of high-profile killings of Black men and boys by police officers shook the country, Atlanta child psychologists and longtime colleagues Dr. Marietta Collins, Dr. Marianne Celano and Dr. Ann Hazzard wanted to do something to spark conversations about racial injustice, counter negative stereotypes and encourage young people to embrace people of all races, cultures and backgrounds. Collins, Celano and Hazzard decided to write a children’s book that tackles not only police shootings but systematic racism going back centuries.
