We Bring To You An Anti-Racist Reading List

During this time of turmoil where people are suffering and violent protests have emerged all across. We bring to you an anti-racist reading list. Check out the books here:

  • When They Call You A Terrorist

When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir is written by Asha Bandele and Patrisse Cullors. Following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, three women – Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Khan-Cullors – came together to form an active response to the systemic racism causing the deaths of so many African-Americans. They simply said: Black Lives Matter; and for that, they were labeled terrorists. This book is an empowering account of survival, strength, and resilience.
  • Sister Outsider

Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde is a collection of speeches and essays.  Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope. This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde-scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde’s philosophies resonate more than twenty years after they were first published.
  • So You Want To Talk About Race

So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America. Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy–from police brutality to the mass incarceration of African Americans–has put a media spotlight on racism in our society.
  • Road Map For Revolutionaries

Road Map for Revolutionaries by Elisa Camahort Page, Carolyn Gerin, and Jamia Wilson is a handbook for people of all ages and backgrounds who are ready to step into advocacy and activism but don’t know where to begin. This beautiful guide covers topics such as staying safe at protests, supporting marginalized communities, online privacy, and how to keep up the fight for the long term.
