National Book Award–winning and New York Times bestselling author Ibram X. Kendi (How to Be an Antiracist, Antiracist Baby) returns with a new picture book, adapted for audio, that serves as a modern bedtime classic.

As children all over the world get ready for bed, the moon watches over them. The moon knows that when we sleep, we dream. And when we dream, we imagine what is possible and what the world can be.
 
With poetic prose, Goodnight Racism delivers important messages about antiracism, justice, and equality in an easy-to-listen format that empowers listeners both big and small. Goodnight Racism gives children the language to dream of a better world and is the perfect audiobook to add to their social justice toolkit.
