Today is Social Justice Literature Day at Book Riot!

Welcome, Rioters! Today we’re excited to explore social justice in literature. Stay informed on important political movements, learn how to engage in meaningful discourse, and get some historical perspective on current events and issues from civil rights, to feminism, to activism for kids.

Learn more about the women warriors of social justice and the uprisings and revolutions that have impacted change. Try these comics about social justice for all ages or plays that provoke thought as they entertain. From nonfiction reads to queer romance, we’ve got the books and conversations to help you tackle the tough stuff and make an impact.

It’s time to dive in. Let’s talk books and social justice.
