10 Books + Resources For Ongoing Anti-Racism Education

At the beginning of the summer, we shared an anti-racism resource guide full of books, articles, videos, podcasts and more to help guide your anti-racism education, as well as our own. Now that we’ve made our way through that list (and hopefully you have, too), we wanted to share a new crop of reading material. It’s ongoing work and we don’t take it lightly. There’s so much learning and unlearning to do, no matter how many books you’ve read. We hope you’ll find this batch inspiring, educational and life-changing.
