This is My America

Johnson, K.
Tracy is a capable 17-year-old who contributes to the school newspaper and manages her own friendships and relationships, but she still has a complicated life: her father is on death row for a murder he didn’t commit, her brother is on the run after being falsely accused of murder, and some people treat her differently because of her family’s supposed actions. Tracy faces a judicial system that treats African Americans unfairly and a community that perpetuates racism. Suitable as a classroom read-aloud, independent novel study, or pair text, this compelling novel deals with the impact of racism, relationships, and social advocacy, and provides an overview of injustices African Americans in the US face.
