"No one becomes 'not racist,'
despite a tendency by Americans to identify themselves that way.
We can only strive to be 'anti-racist' on a daily basis,
to continually rededicate ourselves to the lifelong task of overcoming
our country's racist heritage."
~Ibram X. Kendi (via)

A more extensive list of anti-racism resources.
I'm intentionally keeping this list short so as not to overwhelm...but there are a ton of resources out there that are easy to find. As Kendi says, this is a "lifelong task of overcoming". Our work is not done.
Amplify black voices.
Support + join those doing good work.
Teach + discuss with children.
Live with compassion.
Stand in solidarity.
Do it again.
