It Starts Today
We’ve put together a list of books, films, downloadable guides and events to aid in unlearning past tropes, understand racism and grasp new concepts to combat it.
The only way to keep the conversation going is to continue to educate our selves and act upon our new knowledge.
Our intent should be to heed some of the final words from Rep. John Lewis: “Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America.”
Let us know what you see, hear and feel. And please invite others to visit the site and join in the conversation, too. Send comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advancing Our Anti-Racism Journey – On July 1, 2020, the Y’s African American CEOs hosted a virtual town hall on Unlearning Systemic Racism. Recordings from each speaker along with additional tools are available here.
