"Each volume opens with a chapter that defines prejudice, stereotypes, and racism with examples. The second chapters discuss the history of prejudice against the groups of people, followed by chapters containing first-person accounts from victims." "...sections tell readers how to combat prejudice in themselves and others."
School Library Journal
"These titles in the Gallup Guides for Youth Facing Persistent Prejudice series may sound as if they are aimed at members of the groups facing that prejudice. In fact, they are the opposite: a strong effort to help outsiders better understand and accept these frequently marginalized groups." "True stories from celebrities, community activists, and ordinary teens especially bring to life each group's struggle for equality."
Booklist
"Historical background information and details about current challenges are provided, as well as resources to identify and fight against intolerance." "Glossaries are well constructed (vocabulary is also defined within the text), and the outside source material is current and useful." "General information about prejudice, stereotypes, and the rights of minority groups is well written and presented. Photos are mostly color and mostly serve to illuminate the narrative." "It will be a useful addition to school and public libraries."
VOYA
"This is a fine sociological study and one that should cause its readers to reflect upon their own behavior, beliefs, and actions."
Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
"This series examines the rationale behind prejudice and its impact. Strategies are suggested for dealing with individuals who demean others based upon their victims' affiliation. Historical and contemporary photographs reinforce the text; facts and statistics supporting concepts are frequently mentioned."
