Several people have written to us, asking what they can do to help bring about change and support our Black neighbors.
One of the most important actions non-Black folks can take is to educate themselves on systemic racism and privilege. Below, we’ve compiled a list of books, podcasts, movies, documentaries, and journal prompts to facilitate anti-racist education and discussion. We’ve also included a list of organizations that support people of color, many of which are Akron based, but a few of which are statewide. If you’re able to do so, donating resources can make a difference.
Talk to your parents about this. Talk to your children. Talk to your friends.
