Because Black Lives Matter, a Collection of Anti-Racist Reading Lists

These past few days have seen a wide variety of global protests in support of Black Lives Matter. As a white woman, I constantly find myself having to do the work of breaking down my own misinformation, white privilege and internalized racism. Today I wanted to just share with everyone who, like me, needs to learn more, do better, and break down the white washed history that we are taught in our public schools a variety of links to various anti-racist book lists. If you haven’t already started doing the work, today is a good day to start.
