Anti-Black Racism

TLJN is committed to making efforts to eliminate systemic racism faced by Black communities. This project was developed by J’Davia Noel, TLJN’s student intern for 2020/2021. The goal is to highlight resources relevant and useful to the struggle for equality and liberation with special emphasis on North America.

It is imperative that individuals, as well as public and private organizations, recognize the active measures they must take to combat Anti-Black Racism.

Below are a list of educational resources relevant to all audiences, separated by resource-type. Each resource-type contains subcategories including history, white privilege, fear, technology, policing, intersectionality, and unconscious bias. With accessibility in mind, we want to share information on a wide range of topics to ensure a thorough understanding of Anti-Black Racism and how it manifests itself in our society. This is not an exhaustive list of tools, but rather the first step in becoming educated on how to assist black communities in the struggle for equality.

Trigger Warning: Some resources contain violent language and images.
