“I’ve posted on Instagram. Now what?”
This isn’t a commentary on what’s happening, but hopefully a list of useful and practical resources that at the very least I can share with my circle. Please speak out, share things and send suggestions.
Me & White Supremacy by Layla F Saad – I have a copy of this if anyone would like me to post it to them.
Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race by Renni Eddo-Lodge – I have this on Kindle Cloud Reader, and am happy to share if I can work out how.
I Am Not Your Baby Mother by Candice Brathwaite – on my reading list
How To Argue With a Racist by Adam Rutherford – on my reading list
Scene On Radio (Spotify) – Specifically Podcast series ‘Seeing White’ – John Biewen with guest Dr. Chenjerai Kumanyika (you can also listen for free here). Very educational, talks about the history of slavery, laws and structures and how this is inseparable from the construction of whiteness today. Also suggests solutions and responses in part 14.
Russell Brand & Prof. Kehinde Andrews ‘Why Racism Won’t Go Away’– interview on YouTube with UK prof of Black Studies.
Speaking of Racism (Spotify) – A Podcast series I haven’t listened to yet, but has been recommended by a few others.
