What We Don’t Talk About By Charlot Kristensen
Farai and Adam have been dating for two years, but she's never met his parents. Until this weekend.
Adam's parents have a lovely house in a beautiful small town. But after they arrive, Adam's mom immediately begins making racist comments about everything from Farai's hair to her family's education. Farai asks for Adam's support -- and Adam is used to keeping quiet in response to cruel, critical remarks from his mother for the sake of peace in the family. He doesn't stand up for himself, much less for Farai.
This vividly illustrated graphic novel tackles the prejudice and racism Black people experience on an everyday basis.
