Diversity in kid lit not increasing

Sounds impossible, with the number of books currently circulating in the marketplace, but it's true:

According to data from a study just publicized by Lee & Low Books, publisher of diverse children's books, the number of multicultural books published by and about people of color annually has not increased in the last 18 years. EIGHTEEN YEARS!!

Have a look at Lee & Low's infographic yourself and see just how the industry is lagging. 

Food for thought!
