Educational Resources

We have been working on compiling a list of resources to further our own education on race and racism in America, and we are pleased to share those resources with our community. The state of racism in this country will not be fixed in a few days, weeks, or months. It is a continuous fight that starts with each and every one of us educating ourselves. Below you will find a list of resources organized into categories. Follow the links attached in each category to access the full list for that individual category (e.g. books, podcasts, etc.). You can find the master copy of all of the resources we have compiled HERE.
