I’m still learning. I’m still listening.
And if you’re like me and want to continue learning and listening and you happen on my blog, I’m adding links and embedding some posts that I find useful.
- Goodgoodgood.com: Antiracism resources (includes many books, articles, podcasts and more)
- Anti-Racism Reader: Health and Housing (Berkeley Library – This reading list was created by Ibram X. Kendi)
- I’ll add more resources here about Maryland specifically such as Between The Lines podcast.
And as Nic Stone (author of Dear Martin) pointed out in her essay published in Cosmopolitan on June 8th, 2020 it’s also so important to read fiction that includes Black main characters experiencing joy and love and living their lives.
Because the more we see Black people living—loving and doing and being and feeling and going on adventures and solving mysteries and being the heroes—the more we come to recognize our shared humanity. (Nic Stone, Cosmopolitan)
If you’re looking for ideas on what books to read, Nic Stone includes some titles in her very powerful essay. And Jasmine Guillory also mentions several authors you definitely should have on your radar.
- Don’t just read about racism. Read about stories about Black people living (Essay by Nic Stone in Cosmopolitan on June 8th, 2020)
- Reading Anti-Racist Nonfiction Is a Start. But Don’t Underestimate the Power of Black Fiction (Essay by Jasmine Guillory on June 30th, 2020 in Time)
If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to learning and listening, I’m for example keeping track of Instagram posts by Kimberly Latrice Jones (some of them are embedded below) as she regularly gives Tuesday’s Tasks which help learning about different subjects. I’m embedding two of those posts below but again she has so many more.
