Black Lives Matter

White people. Self educate, listen, reflect, uplift, strive to be antiracist.

I will be sharing my imperfect self education here because making is not untouched by racism. And I’m imposing accountability on myself. I’ve opted out for too long.

I am reading White Fragility starting today. It’s a book I got while I was still teaching. I recognize I should be reading Black authors, but this is what I have available today. I will read Ijeoma Oluo’s and Ibram X. Kendi’s books shown above once I can source them from Black-owned bookstores.

  1. I really appreciated your post. I need my awareness raised and my commitment reinforced. Your comment about finding a non-amazon source hit home with me. In an effort to follow your lead, I found indiebound.org, an online resource that allows me to support independent local bookstores, either online or in-person, once that becomes a possibility again.
    It was your post on planning that led me to your wonderful blog and I’m so glad I found you when I did! xo
