This episode examines the absence of race in children’s literature. Guest interviewer, Dr Emily Zobel Marshall, talks with Darren Chetty and Lisa Stephenson about the reasons why BAME children think stories are about White people and why in a tiny minority of books for primary children feature a BAME character or a BAME protagonist. They discuss the positive role played by the Story Makers project in addressing this absence.
