Bringing Diversity to Kid Lit

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Children's author Zetta Elliott and literary agent Léonicka Valcius join Nam Kiwanuka to discuss the lack of diversity in children's literature. When half of the characters featured in children's books are white, and even non-human characters such as animals and trucks outnumber kids from all minority groups combined, the challenges of bringing diversity to press can seem daunting.
