It is way past time. Time to listen, time to amplify the voices of black leaders, time to educate and understand. Time to do so much better.
I have listed the best resources I’ve seen below in the form of books, podcasts, films, shorts, and incredible accounts to follow.
I implore everyone reading this blog to start peeling back the layers of your implicit bias with these resources. Realize if you are white you will never understand, but you can educate yourself to know how to be a better ally and better human so that you can be a part of the change that NEEDS to happen.
Note, most of these books are out of stock with current demand, but available for audible download. If you wait to order, I highly recommend supporting a black owned bookstore.

I am fully committed to doing the work, not just for this week, but for the rest of my life. This is an issue that took FAR too long to reach this tipping point. I really hope you will take the time to face where we are now, how we got here, and how you can do better to be an ally.
