Dismantling Our Internalized and Systemic Racism

  • A large and incomplete list of things to read, listen to, watch, act, donate  compiled from numerous sources
  • Please share freely

From Philadelphia Magazine,   June 5, 2020:

“Dismantling the systemic racism in our city and our nation starts with demolishing the internalized racism in ourselves. Angela Davis said, “In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” This guide is intended as a starting point for learning about how we got to where we are and how to do better in the future. This list is by no means comprehensive, but we hope that through the many resources we’ve linked to, white readers can stop asking “What do we do?” and actually start doing.”  *      Good advice.
