Understanding Race & Police Through "All American Boys"
Race relations and police interactions can be hard enough for mature people to understand.
How do we explain it to younger people?
Co-authors Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely give the explanation a try in their YA novel All American Boys.
They alternate chapters in the voices of two teens, one black and one white, as they respond to the beating of the black teen by a white cop.
The authors join us with details of project and story.
