We will keep this brief, because ours is not the voice that needs to be heard.
For those of us who are learning, please allow us to share with you this list of resources and media that we found useful in educating ourselves in allyship:
Films / Documentaries
When They See Us (streaming on Netflix)
Whose Streets? (streaming on Hulu)
Books / Audiobooks
Posts / Shorts
This is just the start. Let’s stand together in support of Black communities. Continue to educate ourselves, share resources, and change the conversation within our own families and communities.
For those already fighting, we understand that we will never fully understand. We see you. We hear you. We stand with you. Black lives matter.
