Today’s a good day to read something that makes you feel a little uncomfortable.
Not sure where to begin?
- The National Museum of African American History and Culture has a helpful guide.
- Search for a reading list online.
- Read a handful of different articles and stories to get a sense of what’s out there.
It’s not that hard to get started (it wasn’t hard to start reading books by white authors because there are too many of them, was it?), and some time and discomfort aren’t too big of an ask.
And while you’re at it, read a few statements from corporate and community leaders, too. Why is Ben & Jerry’s able to do what they did, for example? Does it help? Can or should others follow?
