Resources for Learning

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

Here is a list of books, articles, movies, and podcast – all about RACE! Some are for kids, and some for adults. It is by no means exhaustive; it’s just a sampling to get you started - or keep you going! We live in an age when life-long learning is not only possible, but relatively easy. Take some time to listen to and learn from others.
