Jake's Website

Jake’s project aims to highlight the effects of systemic racism and police brutality through the context of a children’s book.

The story follows a girl’s journey through New York to rescue her local library, through her journey she comes up against subtle and not so subtle acts of racism that impede her.

Jake wanted to convey to children that one person can make a difference and overcome these systems that try and oppress them.
