Resources To Educate Yourself on Combating Racism and Understanding White Privilege

June 8, 2020
RESOURCES TO EDUCATE YOURSELF ON COMBATING RACISM AND UNDERSTANDING WHITE PRIVILEGE

I will never personally understand the devastating impacts of indoctrinated and systemic racism and I have never intended to center myself in a movement in which I have no authority or experience to speak on. I am a white, cis-gender woman. I am an ever-learning, always improving ally and advocate. But, I am mostly here to listen.

Below is a list of resources I’ve complied ranging from books to podcasts. I fully acknowledge that this is just a list and that long-term, systemic change will be provoked and sustained through action (not lists or black squares on social media) and that providing resources doesn’t eliminate centuries-old, systemic oppression and violence.

Please comment below with any additional resources or comments.
