James Baldwin said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” Eradicating racism requires deep and meaningful personal and systemic change. Here are some resources that illuminate systems of race, privilege, and power as well as how to enact change in ourselves and our institutions. This list contains ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, and streaming videos. Annotations provided by Kirkus Reviews, unless otherwise noted. (Created May 2020)
