Thank you for showing up. As a white person I benefit from white supremacy and am complicit with white supremacy unless I am actively anti-racist. We perpetuate white supremacy until we actively do the work (silence and doing nothing means we support white supremacy) and are responsible for destroying and dismantling white supremacy, everyday. White supremacy is insidious, it is living and breathing within all of us, weaved into every fabric of our life. We must unlearn racism, learn anti-racism, engage in uncomfortable and often difficult conversations with ourselves and others, understand how white supremacy works and how our lives uphold it, dismantle white supremacy within us while calling in fellow white friends, family, and coworkers, and learn from, listen, support, and follow Black people and People of Color leading, educating, organizing, and guiding the way. Keep an open heart, cultivate fierce self-awareness, hold space with non-judgement, take full responsibility, keep a student mind, be teachable, check the ego, carry courage and humility, lead with vulnerability, and be consistent. We can co-create the world we so deeply desire by dismantling and destroying what is deadly to our people, our hearts, our empathy, and our spirit of what it is to be human.

 Here you will find a list of resources, books, articles, trainings, people to learn from, videos and films to watch, podcasts to listen to, and organizations to join about anti-racism for white folks, which in itself is white centering (the insidious white supremacy). The list is a compilation from over the many years of work, guidance, research, anti-racism trainings, and educators, leaders, and facilitators who I hope you will follow and learn from like an empty cup. It will continue to grow and be updated.

My intention is for this space to be a a guide to anti-racism teachers out there, so that as white friends we can move aside, share, and center, and elevate Black voices. I am indebted to every BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) educator, leader, and voice in the anti-racism movement and hope this is only an entry point into the necessary work we must do as we embark on the life-long journey of anti-racism.

Feel free to share with friends, family, and community.

Friendly Reminder

Keep learning! Everyday pick something to watch, listen, read, join, or follow.

It is your duty to educate yourself.

Seek to learn from Black educators and leaders in the anti-racism movement, with self-awareness and responsibility. 

As white people we are going to fail and slip up many, many times. Keep moving forward, keep speaking up, keep showing up. Take responsibility, drop the ego, be humble, own it, and move forward.

Engage with your friends, family, coworkers. It starts with a conversation.
