Resource List for Learning About Racism & Privilege
This is a list of books, documentaries, films, & podcasts to educate ourselves & our friends/family about racism and privilege. I challenge you to diversify your bookshelves and media consumption by supporting Black authors and creators. This list is just a start. For transparency, I have not read/listened to everything on this list, however I am personally making it a priority to read and listen to as many of these as possible. I am also making it a priority to support more Black-owned businesses, bookstores, authors, & creators directly and encourage you to do so when possible as well. Links were live at time of posting, but may change over time.
