Told from author Tyler Merritt's childhood experience, A Door For Me is a story of affirmation in the face of discrimination.
Visiting his Grandparents for the summer, Tyler, playing with a new friend, experiences an instance of where he is, as a child, discriminated against.
The painful situation leaves Tyler to question himself. His Grandfather helps him understand and affirm his identity and through the analogy of 'open and closed doors', explained that a person's hate doesn't define him.
This book also looks at allyship. If one sees and experiences another being discriminated against, how can you support that person and work against prejudice?
