This book, The Legacy of Racism for Children, focuses on an extremely important but understudied topic in the psychological literature: the legacy of racial discrimination for children of color. The authors develop this theme by introducing many related and timely issues, such as sex trafficking, physical punishment, child maltreatment, education, transracial adoption, juvenile court, criminal court, and immigration. Here, we consider each chapter in the book and summarize its main points, discuss future directions, and provide some relevant research findings. Our chapter highlights the importance of the home and the education system as contexts for intervention. This chapter concludes with a poignant example to discuss the assumption of free will as applied to adolescents or adults who have experienced racial discrimination and other traumas in childhood.
