Once a week we’ll highlight a specific action and invite you to join us.
This weeks anti-racism action item is supporting your Black owned booksellers. As a family we are working through the tome This Book is Anti-Racist by Tiffany Jewell, illustrated by Aurelia Durand.
Quick synopsis: “Gain a deeper understanding of your anti-racist self as you progress through 20 chapters that spark introspection, reveal the origins of racism that we are still experiencing, and give you the courage and power to undo it. Each chapter builds on the previous one as you learn more about yourself and racial oppression. 20 activities get you thinking and help you grow with the knowledge. All you need is a pen and paper.” Today we are encourage you to not just use this moment to read, but take that new knowledge into action now.
Here are is a list of Black owned booksellers. Please seek out those in your community as well.
