Anti-Black Racism Discussion Group
Educating Ourselves: Anti-Racism Resources
Recent (and not so recent) events in Canada and the USA have shed light on the need for all of us to educate ourselves about racism, both the issue of systemic racism and how we can ourselves become anti-racist and promote anti-racism in our community.
The Anti-Black Racism Discussion group has been reading and meeting every two weeks and we’d like to share some of the resources we have found helpful in our learning journey. Our discussions have been rich and challenging, and sometimes difficult, and we encourage other groups to consider engaging in a book or video study as well.
