Anti-Racism Education: A Resource Guide

Cordelia Blanchard 3 months ago

As a result of the recent protests, many people have begun learning more about racism in America and unlearning internal biases and prejudices, both necessary aspects of anti-racism work. We wanted to take some time to share a number of resources that could help you on your anti-racist journey. Below you will find a number of sections reflecting different ways of approaching this learning. We have divided our resources into the following categories: books, articles, podcasts, film, Instagram accounts to follow, courses to take, and organizations to support. We hope you are able to take some time to digest a selection of these resources. While this list is by no means comprehensive, we have found each of these to be helpful in our own understanding of racism and the path of anti-racist work.
