In light of the current global protests against police brutality and racism, we see an increase in people asking for resources on racism and on how to be anti-racist. We have compiled a list of our recommended books, movies, websites, Instagram accounts and other resources. Please note that none of these are our own work or related directly to us: we are merely bringing these together in one place.

This list is also in no way a complete compendium, but rather a place to get started. We will continue updating this list. If you know any other resources you feel should be included let us know!

Watch to donate to BLM
This video project was created to offer people a way to donate and financially contribute to Black Lives Matter without having any actual money or going out to protest themselves. Investing in our future can be difficult for young people, so 100% of the advertisement revenue this video makes through AdSense will be donated to the associations that offer protester bail funds, help pay for family funerals, and advocacy listed in the beginning of the video.
