Resources on Racism

After an eye-opening discussion during our Listening Circle on Race and Privilege hosted by Stelli Munnis, a variety of resources have been shared in a flurry of emails amongst those who participated.

This is a round-up of those resources.

The next Listening Circle has been scheduled for August 30 at 1:00 pm.
Contact Stelli (stelli.munnis@gmail.com) to receive the Zoom invitation.

Books and Articles

  • How to be an Antiracist – Ibram Kendi
  • Me and White Supremacy – Layla Saad
  • So You Want to Talk About Race – Ijeoma Oluo
  • Stamped From the Beginning – Ibram Kendi
  • Stamped – Jason Reynols and Ibram Kendi
    (this is a “remix” of Kendi’s original book which is intended for younger audiences)
  • The New Jim Crow – Michelle Alexander
  • The Warmth of Other Suns – Isabel Wilkerson
    A wonderful book about the black migration from the South to the North and West that occurred between 1915-1970. The author interviewed over 1,000 people who migrated (including her mother) and used detailed stories of three of them, to tell the stories of all of them. Incredibly rich and researched with much learning about Jim Crow laws, systemic racism, the beginning of urban riots, etc. woven throughout.
  • White Fragility – Robin DiAngelo*
    (*Robin DiAngelo is a white woman and many believe we should not be learning about racism from white people who can only understand it theoretically. And that white people should not be profiting – from book sales and lectures – from racism and the Black experience)
