Created by Rattusnorvegicus | 66 items
"This anti-racist syllabus is for people realizing they were never taught how to be anti-racist. How to treat all the racial groups as equals. How to look at the racial inequity all around and look for the racist policies producing it, and the racist ideas veiling it. This list is for people beginning their anti-racist journey .." Ibram X. Kendi (author of "How to Be an Antiracist") "A Reading List for Ralph Northam". The Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/02/antiracist-syllabus-governor-ralph-northam/582580/ I have added a few new books at the end of the list.
