As suggested by our former SJRC Advisory Board member, Amanda Stow, we would like to share Ibram X. Kendi's anti-racist reading list. Kendi writes "This anti-racist syllabus is for people realizing they were never taught how to be anti-racist. How to treat all the racial groups as equals. How to look at the racial inequity all around and look for the racist policies producing it, and the racist ideas veiling it. This list is for people beginning their anti-racist journey."
