Books, TV shows, Podcasts to Educate Ourselves on Anti-Racism

IOur actions need to be positive statements, reminders that even in the worst times there is a world worth fighting for. We need to find ways to keep the vision alive. It's our responsibility to watch, read, listen to and learn the history. 

Maybe this week we can try and swap a Netflix romcom for: 

- Rabbit Proof Fence

- 12 Years a Slave

- When They See Us

- Dear White People

- The Hate You Give

Swap our fantasy sci-fi novel for

- The End of Policing

- A Terrible Thing to Waste- Environmental Racism and its Assault on The American Mind

- Race for Profit

- Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together In The Cafeteria?

Listen to: 

- 1619- The New York Times

- About Race- Reni Eddo- Lodge

- Intersectionality Matters- Kimberle Crenshaw

- Pod For The Cause- From the Leadership Conference on Civil & Human Rights
