Racism is widespread in society. Therefore it’s no longer enough to simply not be racist. We need to actively challenge racist structures, policies and actions. We need to be anti-racist. In order to do this we need to educate ourselves about how racism works, and the things we need to do to challenge racism. To help you with your learning here is a list of anti-racism resources to support your learning and practice.
- UNICEF UK anti-racism resource pack
- Show Racism The Red Card resource and activity packs
- Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge
- How To Be An Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi
- White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo
- Black and British: A Forgotten History by David Olusoga
- Natives by Akala
- Harvard Implicit Association Test
- Michaela Coel’s 2018 MacTaggart Lecture
This list of anti-racism resources is by no means exhaustive. Feel free to suggest any further resources you would like us to add to the list (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org).
Anti-racism is a lifelong commitment, and will be easier on some days than others. Be compassionate to yourself as you pursue this journey, and seek support if you need it.
