Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesHow to Not Be a Racist

The events happeninng ascross the world that have occured in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd have been, to completey undersell it, extraordinary. The latest chaper in the stuggle for equality has shook up the world and brought together people from all races.

However, some people are wondering what else they could do to further the cause in additon to marching and standing shoulder to shoulder with their Black brothers and sisters.

It is the opinion of this author that learning and understaning is a great place to start, not just of the emotional states of individuals, but the natiure and history of the country we live in, and the ways society makes oppression possible. 

Below is a brief list of books and other media resouces to help in that journey. If you have a suggestion for other resources, list them below in the comments or send us an email and we'll add it.
