People around the world are protesting after the recent killings of George Floyd, Atatiana Jefferson, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, shining a long overdue spotlight on the racism our country has been experiencing since before its inception. It's important now and always that we all take action against racism, whether we're within the Black community or joining as an ally to those who have been fighting it for decades.
Black activists, educators, thinkers, and writers have been putting in the emotional and intellectual labour into research and education, sharing practical ways to make change happen. We're highlighting some of the women who have been actively calling us all to get to work and spread the word with their inspiring and honest videos, posts, articles, and books. Follow these women who will continue to hold anyone fighting against racism accountable and informed. Listen, read, learn, and support. We're all in this together.
