Each and every day is an opportunity for change. In this panel, YA authors Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming), Jason Reynolds (Long Way Down), and Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give) join activist DeRay Mckesson (On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope) to explore social justice and positive representation in young adult lit, and how their work redefines our ideas about youth in the resistance. Moderated by author Kwame Alexander. Filmed at BookCon 2018.
