Have you seen the #WeNeedDiverseBooks hashtag? This chart shows why it's true. Of 3,200 recently published children's books received by the Cooperative Children's Book Center in 2013, only 93 were about black people, 34 about Native Americans, 69 about Asians, and 57 about Latinos. The other 2,947? While some feature nonhuman animals or inanimate objects, the majority feature white characters.
