Book 1:
"Small Great Things" by Jodi Picoult
Ruth Jefferson has been a labor and delivery nurse for more than twenty years. She cares about her work, and she's good at it. So she's surprised when a couple requests that she be banned from touching their newborn child. Why? Because of the color of her skin. The parents are white supremacists and don't want an African American nurse. To Ruth's surprise, the hospital complies, and Ruth is reassigned to a different patient.
