Resource guide for anti-racism

“For it isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.” Eleanor Roosevelt

As I mentioned in my previous post; It’s not enough for people to just say they’re not racist, we need to be proactively anti-racist. We need your support. For too long, the burden of ending racism has been placed on those subjected to it, rather than the people who create, uphold and benefit from systemic racism. Here are some of my books I want to share with you. Fill your house, your mind & your heart with Black stories. These books are available on Amazon and on Bol.com.
