After the brutal murder of George Floyd, the world has been shocked into opening their eyes to see the injustices that are happening in the US and all over the world on a daily basis. I will be writing a blog post talking about my views & opinions on what's currently happening, but for now, here are some important resources to learn more.

I haven't necessarily read all the books or watched all the shows, but I know they are about this subject and have been recommended to me. I just wanted to put this list together as a resource for myself and others who want to do better.
